DSS agents forcefully enter the Supreme Court as a decision is awaited regarding IPOB leader Nnamdi Kanu.


Armed personnel from the Department of State Services (DSS) have forcefully entered the Supreme Court premises in anticipation of the imminent verdict in the case of Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).

The Supreme Court is scheduled to announce its decision on the case this morning, Friday, December 15, 2023.

DSS operatives have reportedly obstructed access to the court and the Villa gate, preventing litigants and supporters of the self-proclaimed IPOB leader from reaching the venue.

Even journalists accredited by the Supreme Court with official tags were initially denied entry, with DSS agents relenting only after intervention from high-ranking court officials.

The main entrance to the courtroom was obstructed by an unmarked security vehicle, and journalists underwent thorough frisking before being permitted to enter.

As of the latest update, the panel led by Justice Kudirat Kekere-Ekun is awaited to announce the court’s decision.

On October 5, the Supreme Court had scheduled today for delivering its judgment on the appeal seeking the Federal Government’s release of the embattled IPOB leader from detention.

The apex court’s five-member panel, presided over by Justice Kudirat Kekere-Ekun, approved the case for judgment after the final briefs of argument from both parties’ legal representatives were presented.
