Thugs Attack Sowore During Nnamdi Kanu's Trial, Damages His Car

The publisher of SaharaReporters, Omoyele Sowore, on Thursday was attacked by hoodlums as he was exiting the Federal High Court, Abuja.

The human rights activist had visited the court in the early hours of Thursday to attend the hearing in a case involving the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu.

Kanu is facing an amended 7-count charge bordering on treasonable felony and acts of terrorism which were brought against him by the government after his re-arrest and repatriation to Nigeria in June this year.

It was disclosed that while Sowore was in the courtroom, the hoodlums had laid siege around the court premises waiting for him to come out.

According to SaharaReporters, immediately Sowore came out of the courtroom, the hoodlums attacked him and his entourage with stones.

It was reported that the hoodlums rained several stones on his car, damaging the front and rear side glasses.

The platform claimed that some of the hired hoodlums could be heard telling others to chase the vehicle and make sure the activist was dealt with.

Meanwhile, the trial of the embattled leader of the proscribed group has been shifted to January 18, 2022.

Naija News reports that the new trial date for the Biafran leader was declared by Justice Binta Nyako of the Federal High Court in Abuja today.
