Nobel laureate, Wole Soyinka, and former lawmaker, Shehu Sani, are present at the federal high court in Abuja to witness the trial of Omoyele Sowore, convener of RevolutionNow Movement.
Soyinka arrived at the court about 8:50 am, five minutes before Sowore arrived at the court.
Sowore and Olawale Bakare, his co-accused, are standing trial on seven counts of treasonable felony, fraud, cyber-stalking and insulting the president.
He was arrested by the Department of State Services (DSS) on August 3 ahead of a nationwide protest.
He was released after 124 days in custody, but forcibly rearrested at a federal high court in Abuja — less than 24 hours after his release. He was eventually released on December 24, 2019.
