Journalists have been barred from covering the proceedings of the trial of two major generals being court-martialled in Abuja Monday.

The generals on trial are Major General Patrick Falola, former commander of 68 Nigerian Army Reference Hospital, Yaba, and Major General Ibrahim Sani, former Chief of Army Transportation and Innovation Centre.

The court martial was inaugurated at the Army Headquarters garrison, Mogadishu Cantonment, Abuja on Thursday.

The spokesman of Mogadishu Cantonment Abuja, Colonel Ali Yusuf, said journalists were barred from the trial so as not jeopardise operations of the army adding that they will be briefed about the outcome of the cases later.
