The Ohaneze Ndigbo and some prominent Igbos had accused the Federal Government of conducting a secret trial of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, (IPOB) Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.
Kanu was re-arraigned in a Federal High Court in Abuja yesterday on charges bordering on terrorism in an amended seven count charges by the Federal Government.
Former Governor of Anambra State, Chief Chukwuemeka Ezeife, was with Chief Godwin Uwazurike, when he said that the socio-cultural group of Ndigbo condemns the trial of Kanu, in its entirety because the media were barred from covering the proceedings, calling it a secret trial.
The Senator representing Anambra South Senatorial District, Senator Ifeanyi Ubah, who was barred from gaining entrance into the courtroom also condemned the action of the Federal Government, claiming that as a Senator of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, he ought not to be barred from witnessing the proceedings.
He claimed that even after filing a case in the matter, he was still denied access to the courtroom.
Nigerian journalists covering the court, were allowed into the court premises, but they were prevented from entering court two, where the proceedings were been held.
