Nigerian govt to present five witnesses to testify against Sowore

In preparation for Tuesday’s trial, the Nigerian government has selected five witnesses to testify against the detained publisher, Omoyele Sowore.

The witnesses, comprising investigation officers and banking officials, are to give statements on Sowore’s alleged treasonable offences instigated through the #RevolutionNow protest which held in most parts of the country on August 5.

They will also testify on findings regarding Mr Sowore’s alleged illicit transfer of funds.

The witnesses include Paul Clement, Moses Amadi, Cyril Odawn and Paul Okafor, all investigative officers whose roles would be to tell the court about their findings on how Mr Sowore allegedly “mobilised youths across the country to embark on a revolution that will see to the end of the democratically elected administration.”

Recall that a fresh seven-count charge was on Friday filed against Sowore, accusing him of treason, fraudulent transfer of funds, cyber-stalking, and dissemination of inciting media content.

He was accused alongside a co-defendant, Olawale Bakare.
