LATEST: Abuja Movement Restriction On Sowore By Court Lifted

Omoyele Sowore, a presidential candidate, was granted freedom of movement by a Federal Capital Territory Court of Appeal on Wednesday.

Following allegations of treasonable felony, cyberstalking President Muhammadu Buhari, and other offenses, the human rights activist and convener of Revolution Now was limited to Abuja by a federal high court in 2019.

Sowore can now leave Abuja but not Nigeria, according to the Appeal Court’s decision.

On August 3, 2019, agents of the Department of State Service detained Sowore in a Lagos hotel for organising a rally dubbed “#RevolutionNow.”

As part of the bail restrictions imposed by Justice Ijeoma Ojukwu, he was then limited to Abuja.

The new ruling, on the other hand, will allow Sowore move around Nigeria.

The court said that the restriction of the 2023 presidential aspirant to Abuja was “excessive”, and therefore, lifted it.
