The African Action Congress (AAC) presidential candidate, Omoyele Sowore, has arrived at the Federal High Court in Abuja for his retrial on charges related to a treasonable felony brought against him by the Nigerian Government.
Sowore, a prominent human rights activist, appeared at the court premises around 8:45 a.m., accompanied by his supporters who came out in solidarity.
Also present in the courtroom were human rights organization Amnesty International members, who wore black T-shirts to express their support for Sowore.
Amnesty International had previously designated Sowore as a prisoner of conscience due to his arbitrary detention and unfair trials, which were seen as a result of his exercise of the right to freedom of expression.
It should be recalled that Justice Emeka Nwite of the Federal High Court in Abuja had adjourned the case on July 5, 2023, due to the absence of the co-defendant, Olawale Bakare, who is set to face trial alongside Sowore. Sowore is expected to enter his plea during this retrial.
