A court in Nigeria has ordered the politically-sensitive trial of Niger Delta rebel leader Henry Okah to take place behind closed doors, in a move expected to anger factions of the armed militant group.

Okah, the suspected leader of the Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger Delta (MEND), refused to enter a plea and told the court that he had been allowed just 30 seconds with his lawyers since his extradition from Angola in February.
