A Federal High Court in Abuja has refused an application for secret trial of leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu. Justice James Tsoho in his ruling yesterday held that the application is not appropriate in the circumstances of the case since it is not a terrorism case. He however directed that “names and addresses of the witnesses would not be made public.”
The judge sustained an earlier order he made on February 9 permitting family members of the defendants and interested members of the public to attend the trial subject to the capacity of the court.
