A media rights advocacy group, International Press Centre (IPC) has condemned the decision of the Department of State Services (DSS) to accredit ten media organisations to cover the trial of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) on Monday 26th July 2021.

The condemnation was contained in a press release signed by Melody Lawal, the IPC Program Officer and made available to Press.

The statement said the media rights group is of the firm opinion that the Department of State Service (DSS) has no constitutional right to accredit journalists to cover the trial of Nnamdi Kanu or any other suspect for that matter based on the provisions of the National Security Agencies Act.
