Nobel lauréate, Wole Soyinka, and former Kaduna senator, Shehu Sani are at a federal high court in Abuja to witness the trial of Omoyele Sowore, convener of RevolutionNow Movement.
Soyinka arrived about 8:50am, five minutes before Sowore arrived at the court.
Sowore and Olawale Bakare, his co-accused, are standing trial on seven counts of treasonable felony, fraud, cyber-stalking and of insulting the president.
The trial which was supposed to resume yesterday was postponed to today because of the absence of the presiding judge
He was arrested by the Department of State Services (DSS) on August 3 ahead of a nationwide protest.
He was released after 124 days in custody, but forcibly rearrested at a federal high court in Abuja — less than 24 hours after his release.
He was eventually released on December 24, 2019.
