Baba Ijesha Arrives Court As Sexual Assault Trial Begins

Revolution Now convener and activist, Omoyele Sowore, has been arrested at the Federal High Court Abuja as the trial of Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra resumes.

It was gathered that security agents picked up the ‘Buhari-must-go’ activist on the court premises during a Facebook Live session on Monday morning.

There is tight security around the court as the trial of Kanu, who has been in the custody of the Department of State Service resumed today.

Kanu, who was earlier extradited into Nigeria from a foreign country, is facing terrorism-related charges before Justice Binta Nyako.

Journalists at the entrance to the court are barred by DSS officers from entering the court on the ground that they were not accredited to cover the trial.
