Sowore was said to have been arrested on Monday while attending the court trial of Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) at the Federal High Court, Abuja.

Daily Trust reports that security operatives have cordoned off the entrance to the Federal High Court in Abuja venue of the trial, just as vehicles loaded with operatives of the Nigeria Police and the Department of States Services (DSS) are preventing “unaccredited” journalists and members of the public from accessing the court.

To ensure that the IPOB leader gets a fair hearing, the organization said it had constituted a legal team led by its national legal adviser and eminent Igbo leaders to monitor the legal proceedings throughout the trial.
