His full name is Omoyele "Yele" Sowore. He is known best as a Nigerian human rights activist, a pro-democracy campaigner, a former presidential candidate, and also the founder of an online news agency Sahara Reporters. He was accused of treason because he called for a protest tagged revolution Now.
He was arrested by the Nigerian state security service on 3rd of August 2019
Sowore did not attended the court session alone. He come in with a man in 'Juju dress'. This sparked a lot of reactions. By summoning the spirits, Sowore decided to take it beyond the physical. The traditionalist was seen waving his horse whip and gourd in the air.
The man walking next to Sowore is a sign that Sowore has his own spiritual kind of protection. This is not the first time this is happening. Sunday Igboho was spotted with charms on him on many occasions. With a backup like this, it would be surely interesting to see the outcomes of the courts judgment
