There is heavy security presence in an Abuja magistrate court following the arraignment of the director of the Independent People Of Biafra Nnamdi Kanu.
The security operatives mostly armed search ask anyone who tried to enter the court for identification. Also there are scores of Nigerians both outside and inside the court house.
Immediately Kanu was brought in by the SSS there was jubilation by the people outside, chanting: “Nwa Chineke” meaning child of God.
Most of them were running to touch the accused person as Kanu, looking scruffy, unkempt and dressed in a light blue shirt waved to the crowd.
Kanu was arrested on October 18 by operatives of the State Security Services (SSS) on his arrival from the United Kingdom.On November 18, Kanu’s arraignment was stalled due to absence in court.
The magistrate had ordered the SSS to produce Kanu in court on the next adjourned date – today, November 23.
