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 and cyberstalking the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari(retd.), among other offenses.
The Appeal Court ruled that Sowore could now leave Abuja but not travel out of Nigeria.
The court said that the restriction of the 2023 presidential aspirant to Abuja was “excessive”, and therefore, lifted it.
