A mild commotion was witnessed at the Abuja Federal High Court, on Monday, ahead of the resumed trial of Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB.
This came as a senior police officer wearing a facemask threatened to shoot a supporter of IPOB for questioning his order.
The officer confronted the IPOB supporters for assembling in front of the court.
He charged them to vacate the area but they insisted to know where they should move to.
Speaking to the IPOB supporters, the officer said: ” I don’t need you here now, so disperse; go in peace we don’t want this gathering.”
Responding, one of the bystanders demanded to know why they should vacate the area.
“Where should we go to, I won’t know where we should go to.”
In a show of solidarity, the others responded: “There are many officers here and we are here for peace and Kanu.”
Aggrieved by the response, the officer identified the first responder whom he went after with his pistol.
The members responded: “If you like shoot him, We are recording you.”
