Description DM2011060152:NIGED:POLITICS:PERSONALITIES:FEB 1963 – Awolowo Is Charged With Treason –Some Came Smiling, plenty of smiles as some of the accused arrived in heavily guarded police vans. The trial of Chief Awolowo and 24 others began with high drama. On the first day, tension mounted. On the second, it flared… No Nigerian outside the Criminal Investigation Department suspected that, on a day in November 1962, there would occur an event that would, in its significance and suddenness put the proceedings of the Coker Commission of Inquiry into the shade. And when the great event started to unfold, it did so with all the suspense of a slow-motion picture. ( Photograph by Matthew Faji Photographer ©BAHA)
