Senator Ifeanyi Uba yesterday protested after he was denied access into the courtroom to observe proceedings in the trial against Nnamdi Kanu.
Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, was yesterday arraigned at a Federal High Court in Abuja on treasonable felony and terrorism charges.
Journalists and others were barred from gaining entrance into the courtroom to observe proceedings.
In a chat with journalists, Uba said, “As a serving Senator of the Federal Republic, today, I have a case in court and I was to present myself in court regarding my motion.
“This (Thursday) morning, I came to the court from the Transcorp Hilton axis, it was blocked. I tried the Borno House axis, it was also blocked.
“As a Senator of the Federal Republic, I think I have the right to enter the court premises even if I have no business in the court.”
