Recall that the Supreme Court had fixed the date to deliver judgment on the case involving Kanu and President Bola Ahmed Tinubu's led federal government.

However, the embattled IPOB leader has been in the Department of State Services (DSS) custody since the days of ex-President Muhammadu Buhari.

In a twist on Friday, Omoyele Sowore, a former presidential candidate on the African Action Congress (AAC) platform, raised the alarm via his Facebook page that the DSS manned the Supreme Court premises.

Ahead of the judgment, Sowore disclosed that the operatives of the secret police stationed at the gate denied him access to the court.

The human rights activist, in a now trending video, described the action of the DSS operatives as "shameful", alleging the APC is behind Kanu's persecution.

He wrote:

"I tried attending the Supreme Court ruling for #FreeNnamdiKanuNow this morning but was denied access by an unruly team of @OfficialDSSNG officers stationed at the gate of the #SupremeCourtofNigeria screaming #AccessforSowore. It was shameful and this tells that the persecution of Nnamdi Kanu is an @OfficialAPCNg official position. The regime of Bola Tinubu @officialABAT is in on it."
