Omoyele Sowore, the publisher of Sahara Reporters, and others who were arrested during a protest at the Federal High Court in Abuja have been released by the police.
The activists had organised a protest in support of Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra, who is currently on trial.
Sowore was picked while running a Facebook Live session at the court premises.
The ‘Buhari-Must-Go’ activist announced that he and the others had been released a few hours after their arrest.
“They have just released us. They dragged, harassed and beat us. They took us to the Federal Secretariat Police Station. I told them that they have no right to arrest me,” he said.
“I have a right to observe the trial of Nnamdi Kanu. They took our cards and deleted all recordings.”
