The Convener of RevolutionNow, Omoyele Sowore has been arrested at the Abuja Federal High Court by the police.
Onyxnewsng reports Sowore disclosed his arrest on his verified Twitter handle on Monday.
He wrote: “Just arrested by @PoliceNG at the Federal High Court in Abuja!
“RevolutionNow Nothing can stop the idea whose time has come,” Sowore tweeted.
Though the reason for Sowore’s arrest is unknown, the activist might have been arrested alongside supporters of Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB.
Kanu’s trial resumes today at the Abuja Federal High Court, same place Sowore was arrested.
Meanwhile, Onyxnewsng understands that Sowore had just been released.
“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,” he said.
