The publisher of Sahara Reporters, Omoyele Sowore, who was arrested today alongside others during a protest at the Federal High Court, Abuja during the Nnamdi Kanu trial which was stalled due to the absence of the IPOB leader, have been released.
The activists had staged a protest in solidarity with leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) Nnamdi Kanu, who is undergoing trial.
The activist has now announced he and others have been released.
He said: “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.
“I have a right to observe the trial of Nnamdi Kanu. They took our cards and deleted all recordings.”
