Dozens of protesters on Wednesday in Abuja besieged the headquarters of the Court of Appeal and Federal High Court to protest the delay in the trial of 2019 Presidential candidate of the AAC, Omoyele Sowore, oyogist.com reports.

The protesters demanded the withdrawal of the trumped-up charges against the activist.

They gathered at the main gate of the Court of Appeal before proceeding to the Federal High Court located in Maitama alongside the activist to register their displeasure at the slow pace of his trial.

A Protester said the government resorted to delay tactics because they did not have evidence against the activist.

He said, “It is clear that this government has no evidence to prosecute Sowore and that is why they have resorted to delay.

“This delay tactics will not work, they should withdraw all the trumped-up charges against Sowore and allow him to go.”

The Nigerian Government is prosecuting Sowore for calling on the people to take to the streets in peaceful demonstrations to demand a better country.
