It's no longer news that Senator Ifeanyi Ubah of the Young Progressives Party (YPP), was prevented by Nigerian Security operatives from gaining entrance into a Federal High Court in Abuja on Thursday, 21st October, 2021.
According to the Anambra Guber Candidate, he went to visit Mazi Nnamdi Kanu but was denied access into the Federal High Court premises in Abuja, adding that he was made to trek as security agents had blocked all entrances to the court.
He also disclosed how he was denied access on two occasions by the DSS to discuss with Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.

The Senator, who was allegedly not happy with the development took to Social media to explain all that happened. He said, “In furtherance of my pending application seeking the permission of the court to visit Mazi Nnamdi Kanu in detention, today being Thursday; 21st October, 2021, I was denied access into the Federal High Court premises in Abuja. To my utmost dismay and chagrin, I was subjected to the harrowing experience of trekking long distances after I explored three entrance routes to the court premises, but was brazenly barred by security operatives, even after identifying myself as a Senator of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and showing them a copy of my pending application before the Federal High Court, Abuja. The Judiciary is the last bastion of democracy; as such, the blatant refusal to allow lawyers, representatives of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Civil Society Organizations and public office holders like myself into the court premises, is not only ridiculous but a contemptuous violation of our democratic ethos as a nation.”
Senator Ifeanyi Ubah however, called on the Federal Government to find a political solution to the issues surrounding the arrest and detention of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.
