In addition, armed security personnel and plain-clothed security men suspected to be from the Department of State Services (DSS) Operatives were on the ground to prevent any unforeseen events.




The seven defendants, led by  Adedoyin, who arrived early in court were also seen entering the courtroom.




Before being allowed into the court premises and into the courtroom, lawyers,  journalists, and visitors were subjected to a thorough search and required to present a valid identification by plain-clothed security personnel and court protocol officers.
