The Federal Government on Monday January 4, arraigned SaharaReporters publisher, Omoyele Sowore, and four others at the Magistrate Court in Wuse Zone 2, Abuja for leading a protest against bad governance on New Year’s Eve in Abuja.
Sowore and the four others are being arraigned on three charges of Criminal conspiracy, unlawful assembly, and attempting to incite others against the government.
Sowore had earlier before the protest charged Nigerians on Twitter to hold a crossover protest by picking up a candle and a placard showing their grievances against the Buhari administration.
This is not the first time Sowore will be arrested. In 2019, he was arrested and detained for over 100 days for calling for a #RevolutionNowProtest.
