Nnamdi Kanu: Police release Sowore, others in Abuja
Omoyele Sowore, the Convener of RevolutionNow, and others arrested during a protest at the Federal High Court, Abuja have been released.
WITHIN NIGERIA had earlier reported that the activist was arrested after he staged a protest in solidarity with Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, who is undergoing trial.
However, a few hours after their arrest, the ‘Buhari-Must-Go’ activist took to his social media account to announce that he had been released alongside others.
He said, “They have just released us. They dragged, harassed and beat us. They took us to the Federal Secretariat Police Station. I told them that they have no right to arrest me.
“I have a right to observe the trial of Nnamdi Kanu. They took our cards and deleted all recordings.”
