The presidential candidate of the African Action Congress and Convener of the #RevolutionNow movement, Mr Omoyele Sowore, has arrived in Lagos State yesterday to attend the 13th Memorial Lecture of late human rights lawyer and activist, Gani Fawehinmi, as a guest speaker.
Sowore was arrested by operatives of the Department of State Service at midnight on August 3, 2019, for convening the #RevolutionNow protest slated for August 5 of the same year. He was later charged for treasonable felony among others and was released on December 24, 2019.
Sowore was thereafter put under city arrest, and was not allowed to leave the Federal Capital Territory until a Court of Appeal in Abuja lifted the movement restriction within the country on April 13, this year.
He is, however, still restricted by a court order from traveling out of the country, as his passport was seized.
The human rights activist arrived Lagos yesterday to speak at the 13th memorial to the celebrated lawyer and activist, Fawehinmi, who died September 5, 2009. The event was held in the Ikeja area of Lagos yesterday.
