Court continues Sowore’s trial Friday

By Olalekan Awojodu

A Federal High Court sitting in Abuja Thursday adjourned the trial of human rights activists, Omoyele Sowore and Olawale Bakare.

While announcing the adjournment, the court registrar said the trial will continue on Friday (Today) the 11th, 2020, citing the absence of the trial judge, Justice Ijeoma Ojukwu.

This medium learnt that the Judge was indisposed. “Come back on Friday”, the court registrar told Sowore and his company who thronged the court in their usual solidarity manner.

Meanwhile, supporters of the activists were sighted earlier by our Correspondent chanting solidarity songs ‘Free Sowore’ outside the Federal high court premises.

Although armed mobile police were deployed to the premises to maintain law order, some of them were seen with placards and inscriptions like: ‘Free Sowore’ ‘#Revolution Now’ while the session lasted.
