Sowore Released After Arrest At Nnamdi Kanu’s Trial

Sahara Reporters publisher; Omoyele Sowore, has been released after he was arrested at the Federal High Court in Abuja on Monday at the trial of Nnamdi Kanu.

The RevolutionNow convener and other supporters of Nnamdi Kanu; the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), were in court for the trial of the separatist before they were later arrested.

He later announced his release in a video where he was seen in a vehicle.

“I have been released,” Sowore said, adding that he had returned to the court to attend the proceedings some “5 young persons illegally detained by the DSS for wearing #BuhariMustGo Tshirts to Dunamis Church. Will keep you all updated. Thank you for your support!”.

According to Sahara Reporters; prior to his arrest, Sowore was earlier seen in the day around the court premises probably to attend the scheduled court session on the fundamental rights abuse case involving five activists arrested at Dunamis Church, Abuja.

The Sahara Reporters publisher was, however, accosted as he continued to lifestream activities around the court vicinity.

“I have just been arrested by the Nigerian Police at the Federal High Court; Subjected to beatings by police officers and take to the Federal Secretariat police station,” Sowore said in his text message to one of his associates on Monday.

Security operatives, comprising the police and operatives of the State Security Service (SSS) had taken over the court premises and the adjoining streets, restricting movements in the area ahead of the trial.

Sowore, among many journalists and others, who had hoped to attend the proceedings were all denied entry into the court premises.

Today's Quote

“Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.”
