Description DM2011060153:NIGED:POLITICS:PERSONALITIES:FEB 1963 – Awolowo Is Charged With Treason – Chief Awolowo and Michael Omisade give a victory sign as they arrive at the Lagos High Court at the start of the trial. 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)
