Human Rights activist and convener of the Revolution Now, Omoyele Sowore who is also the owner of Sahara Reporters earlier today scored a big win against the Nigerian government as a Court of appeal in Abuja lifted his movement restriction.
According to PUNCH, Sowore was, in 2019, restricted to Abuja by a Federal High Court following charges of treasonable felony and cyberstalking the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari(retd.), among other offenses.
The Appeal Court ruled that Sowore could now leave Abuja but not travel out of Nigeria.
The court said that the restriction of the 2023 presidential aspirant to Abuja was “excessive”, and therefore, lifted it.
Sowore was arrested in a Lagos hotel by operatives of the Department of State Service on August 3, 2019, for planning to organise a protest, tagged “#RevolutionNow”.
He was subsequently restricted to Abuja as part of the bail conditions granted to him by Justice Ijeoma Ojukwu.
By the new verdict, Sowore could now move around Nigeria.
