Omoyele Sowore’s trial resumes today

Hearing will continue today at the Federal High Court in Abuja in the trial against #RevolutionNow Convener Omoyele Sowore.

On December 6, 2019, Justice Ijeoma Ojukwu adjourned till February 11, 12 and 13, 2020, for definite hearing in the trial.

But the court did not sit yesterday as Justice Ojukwu was sitting outside division.

Sowore and co-defendant, Olawale Bakare, are facing trial over charges of treasonable felony for organising the #RevolutionNow protest on August 5, 2019, which the government saw as an attempt to disrupt peace in the country.

He was arrested on August 3, 2019, by the Department of State Services (DSS) and was in custody until December 5, 2019, despite court orders to release him on bail.
