The Senator representing Anambra South Senatorial District at the National Assembly, Dr. Patrick Ifeanyi Ubah
has been denied access to the Federal High Court, Abuja by security operatives to witness the trial of the leader of the Indigenous People Of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu
Given the massive security around the court premises, the Senator was forced to trek long distances to gain access to the court premises. This proved abortive as he was denied access on the three entrance routes he explored.
Not even the fact that he identified himself as a Senator of the Federal Republic and showed the operatives his pending application requesting for an order of the court to visit Mazi Nnamdi Kanu in DSS detention could sway the security operatives who said they were acting on superior orders.
At press time, Senator Ubah was still attempting to access the court premises to ensure that his pending application was heard by the court.
Recall that Senator Ubah had filed an application to visit Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, having been denied access on two occasions by the DSS to discuss with the IPOB Leader on his trial and his condition in detention among others.
