The police has arrested some members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) who stormed the Federal High Court in Abuja for the trial of their leader, Nnamdi Kanu.

Aggrieved members of the group thronged the court ahead of Kanu’s trial in show of support and to also demand his release.

As the number of supporters increased, policemen stormed the place and chased them away while some were arrested.

Kanu’s trial is scheduled to continue today after he was arrested and extradited to Nigeria in June.

He was re-arraigned and remanded in the custody of the Department of State Services (DSS) following his extradition to Nigeria.

The IPOB leader is facing charges of treasonable felony for his agitation for an independent Republic of Biafra.
