BREAKING: Police arrest Sowore in Abuja

SJust In: Sowore announces nationwide protest to end SARS

Omoyele Sowore, an activist and publisher of the Sahara Reporters, was detained at the Federal High Court in Abuja as the trial of Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the outlawed Indigenous People of Biafra, resumed.

Security personnel was said to have apprehended the activist on the court grounds during a Facebook Live event on Monday morning.

Sowore also announced his arrest on his Twitter account.

The trial of Kanu, who has been in the custody of the Department of State Service, commenced today with intense security around the court.

Kanu is facing terrorism-related accusations before Justice Binta Nyako after being extradited from a foreign country.


Journalists at the court’s door are banned from entering because they are not accredited to cover the trial, according to DSS officers.


The DSS had also prevented several media outlets from covering the trial of Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, which is still ongoing.
