The Federal Government has arraigned Omoyele Sowore and four others over a protest against President Muhammadu Buhari on New Year’s Eve in Abuja.

Sowore was arrested by the police and arraigned at the Magistrate Court in Wuse Zone 2, Abuja.

The Federal Government arraigned Sowore on three charges of criminal conspiracy, unlawful assembly, and attempt to incite others.


Sowore and the four others all pleaded not guilty to the charges.

The Prosecution, however, alleged that the defendants were arrested on New Year’s eve with placards calling for a violent revolution against President Muhammadu Buhari.
