Omoyele Sowore, the publisher of Sahara Reporters and convener of #RevolutionNow protest, is set to be arraigned before the Federal High Court in Abuja on Monday.
Sowore who has been charged with treasonable felony, amongst other offences, arrived at the court this morning chanting #RevolutionNow. While he chanted “Revolution” his followers who were already waiting for him responded “Now”.
Recall that the Department of State Services, DSS, on August 3, 2019, arrested Sowore for calling for a revolution through a protest scheduled to hold on August 5. The protest was interpreted as an attempt to topple the Buhari led administration.
Justice Taiwo Taiwo in the Abuja Division of the Federal High Court granted the DSS permission to detain the activist in custody for 45 days and at its expiration, the Attorney General of the Federation filed a seven-count charge of treasonable felony, cyber crimes and money laundering against the activist.
