Nigerians in Abuja have stormed the Magistrate Court in Abuja where Omoyele Sowore’s case is being heard to demand for his release and others’ on bail.
Recall that Sowore, Gudu 5 and some others have been arrested on the 1st of January for inciting violence and breaking COVID-19 curfew rules.
He has since then been in detention and all efforts to get him out on bail proved abortive. His case had also suffered setback as the Prosecution counsel opposed the hearing of the application on the grounds that defendant was served with the application by 10.43 a.m. in court contrary to the order of the court for the service to be effected on him before 4.00 p.m. Read also: Release Sowore Now Or Prepare More Cells – Oby Ezekwesili Tells Buhari
