Publisher of Sahara Reporters Omoyele Sowore and others arrested during a protest at the Federal High Court, Abuja has been released.
The activists had staged a protest in solidarity with leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) Nnamdi Kanu, who is undergoing trial.
A few hours after their arrest, the ‘Buhari-Must-Go’ activist announced he had been released alongside others.
He said: “They have just released us. They dragged, harassed and beat us.
“They took us to the Federal Secretariat Police Station. I told them that they have no right to arrest me.
“I have a right to observe the trial of Nnamdi Kanu. They took our cards and deleted all recordings.”
Reacting, the Coalition of Civil Society condemned the arrest of Sowore and other supporters of the detained IPOB leader Nnamdi Kanu.
