BREAKING: Again, DSS Arrest Human Rights Activist, Omoyele Sowore

Security operatives have on Monday arrested human rights activist and veteran journalist, Omoyele Sowore.

The activist was at the court to observe the court cases of Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).

A photographer, Yusuf Bromley was with Sowore at the time had his camera seized but was able to escape.

Justice Obiora Egwuatu however, ordered DSS to deliver the five activists arrested at Dunamis Church, Abuja for wearing BuhariMustGo T-shirts, while ruling on the ex parte motion filed by their lawyer, Pelumi Olajengbesi.

Africa Investigative Magazine gathered that Nigerian government, earlier blocked some media organisations from covering the trial of Kanu.

Federal Government allowed only 10 media houses to cover the trial of IPOB leader by the court which was heavily guided by security agents.

The media houses were TV station and newspaper belonging to the national leader of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, TVC, and The Nation respectively.

Others were Premium Times, Daily Independent, The Herald, NTA, AIT, News Agency of Nigeria, and Channels TV.

The government through the DSS did not give reasons for picking the 10 media houses while barring others from covering the trial.
