Security was increased around the Federal High Court on Monday ahead of the resumption of the trial of Nnamdi Kanu.

According to reports, major entrances to the court have been blocked.

Mr Kanu is the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), a group seeking the breakaway of a significant chunk of southern Nigeria, to form a Republic of Biafra.

He was first arrested by Nigerian authorities in 2015 on an 11-count charge bordering on “terrorism, treasonable felony, managing an unlawful society, publication of defamatory matter, illegal possession of firearms and improper importation of goods, among others.”

The Federal Government is expected to bring new charges against him on Monday.
