The convener of #RevolutionNow Protest, Mr Omoyele Sowore, was on Monday arraigned before a Federal High Court in Abuja by the Nigerian Government.

Nigerian Government,
Sowore in court

The Online Publisher of Sahara reporters was arraigned alongside his co-defendant, Mr Olawale Bakare.

They were brought to the court by operatives of the Department of State Services (DSS).

Recall that the court led by Justice Taiwo Taiwo had granted Sowore bail as at last week but the DSS spurned court’s order on Sowore, and declared to dock him this Monday.

Sowore and Bakare are to face seven charges preferred against him by the Federal Government.

Among the charges are alleged conspiracy to commit treason, money laundering, and insulting the President.

The arraignment comes one week after Justice Taiwo Taiwo ordered the release of Mr Sowore, more than five days after a detention order the judge issued against him elapsed.

The DSS had withdrawn its application for extension of time.
