Court lifts movement restriction on Sowore

NEWS DIGEST – A Court of Appeal in Abuja has, on Wednesday, lifted the movement restriction on human rights activist and convener of Revolution Now, Omoyele Sowore.

Sowore was, in 2019, restricted to Abuja by a federal high court following charges of treasonable felony, cyberstalking the President Muhammadu Buhari, among other offences.

The Appeal court ruled that Sowore could now leave Abuja but not travel out of Nigeria.
