The Publisher of Sahara Reporters, Omoyele Sowore, and others who were arrested during the resumption of Nnamdi Kanu’s trial at the Federal High Court in Abuja, on Monday, have been released.
The activist had staged a protest in solidarity with the leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Kanu, who is undergoing trial.
A few hours after their arrest, the ‘Buhari-Must-Go’ and ‘Revolution Now’ convener announced via his social media platforms that he had been released alongside others.
He wrote: “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.”
