FG opens Sowore’s treasonable felony trial


The Federal Government yesterday opened its case in the trial of the convener of #RevolutionNow protest, Omoyele Sowore, calling the first witness, one Mr. Rasheed Olawale, an operative of the Department of State Services (DSS).
Sowore and Olawale Bakare are standing trial for a two-count charge bordering on treasonable felony.
Although they were initially arraigned by the DSS, the Ministry of Justice has, however, taken over the case.
Led in evidence by the prosecution counsel, Aminu Alilu, the first prosecution witness (PW1) disclosed that he led the team of operatives that arrested Sowore last August in Lagos.
According to the witness, the journalist was arrested following intelligence report that he had planned to carry out a revolution along with his associates on August 5, 2019, against the democratic government of Nigeria.
