Why Access Denial Of Lawyers And Journalists To Court By SSS, Is Commendable

The long awaited day is here. A lot of citizens of the country have anticipated to see the outcome of today's court trial of the proscribed leader of the Indigenous People Of Biafra, IPOB, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu. His case has been a very sensitive one as it has drawn the attention of so many Nigerians and even foreign counterparts.

Recall that the Abia-born Nigerian, Nnamdi Kanu, was arrested by the Department of State Services DSS, due to some charges laid against him. Some of the charges are; calling the President of Nigeria, Muhammadu Buhari, "an idiot" and also his negative verbal influence that has posed threat of disintegration on the country and also disrupted the peace of the South-east region. It has been alleged that his influence on the region, has led to attrocities allegedly caused by the IPOB members.

The adjournment of his court trial, due to the inability of the DSS to produce him in court the last time has stirred mixed reactions as people have really anticipated what his fate would be today. Following his court trial today, October 21, it has been confirmed that Mr Kanu has arrived the court and the State Security Service (SSS) has resisted all access to the Federal High Court sitting in Abuja. This is stop lawyers and journalists from attending the trial of Mr Kanu.

I must commend the SSS for such bravery, because Kanu's case is a very sensitive one that needs professionalism. A lot of people wants to dent the image of the country with his case and that is highly prohibited. Denying the lawyers and journalists access to court would reduce the spread of fake news, propaganda, or even avoid complications regarding his court trial.

As a reader what do have to say on this?
