The Publisher of Sahara Reporters, Omoyele Sowere, has been barred from accessing the courtroom to witness the trial of Nnamdi Kanu.
The activist was told to return by operatives of the Department of State Services and the Nigerian Police Force.
Speaking to journalists, Sowere said he was there to witness the trial of his friend, Nnamdi Kanu. He said, “I am here to witness the trial of my friend, Nnamdi Kanu, the court is a public space and the public should not be barred from accessing the courtroom.”

He also added, “I am here to check the registry because for a while I have not been charged to court, I need to know about my treason case.
“People have the right to self-determination, Nigeria has not worked and will never work. So Nnamdi Kanu is not wrong and his trial should not be in secret.
He lamented that security operatives have not done their jobs and have used the opportunity to harass journalists. “Security operatives have consistently failed to do their jobs and now you see them harassing journalists and lawyers,” he said.
