Justice John Tsoho, the Chief Judge of the Federal High Court Abuja, has announced a secret trial for embattled supreme leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.

Tsoho stated this while issuing new practice direction for the trial of terrorism suits before the Court, including that of the IPOB leader.

The development is in the exercise of the Judge’s constitutional powers as enshrined in Section 254 of the Constitution of Nigeria 1999 (as amended).

The new arrangement strictly prohibits media coverage of proceedings, “except as may be directed by the court.”

The IPOB leader is facing charges bordering on terrorism and related offenses, after being arrested in Kenya and extradited to Nigeria through the help of Interpol.
