Kanu's Trial: Sowore was beaten up by suspected hoodlums at Federal High Court in Abuja.

Publisher of Sahara Reporters, Omoyele Sowore, was assaulted by suspected hoodlums at the Federal High Court in Abuja on Thursday. 

Sowore was denied access into the court by the security agents. But as he was still talking to the security men, some young men about 20 in number, it was observed arrived. 

Their presence was perceptible in the confusion because they looked unkempt.

However, to the shock of everybody, the security agents kept silent. 

Promptly the suspected hoodlums descended on Sowore, slapping and punching him. 

To the shock of everybody, the security agents just looked on but intervened after shouting from those present by holding Sowore back. 

However the punks after attacking Sowore left without being caught by the security agents.

This prompted one more shock as individuals around requested they should be captured.

It was gathered that before the incident, Sowore said: “A court room is not complete except people are there to witness proceedings, i want to sit right in front of the judge and witness it all".
