Omoyele SoworeUnknown hoodlums attacked Omoyele Sowore, an activist and former presidential candidate, at the trial of Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) on Thursday, October 21.
There was mayhem at the Federal High Court in Abuja prior to the start of Nnamdi Kanu’s trial.
This began when Omoyele Sowore, the publisher of Sahara Reporters, attempted to gain entry to the courtroom where the trial would be held.
Those who witnessed the despicable act voiced outrage that the hoodlums had direct access to Sowore, causing major tension and confusion.
The Nigerian Army, the Department of State Services (DSS), and Nigerian Police Force officers were observed patrolling every access to the court and the streets leading to the court complex.
Journalists whose names were not on a list were not permitted to enter the courtroom.
The court’s personnel who arrived by bus were forced to line and were checked before being allowed to enter the premises.
