Nigerian activist, Omoyele Sowore has been released by the police.
The convener of the #RevolutionNow movement confirmed his release in a text message.
Recall that he was arrested on Monday at the federal high court in Abuja.
Sowore, who was at the court premises, said he had come to attend the hearing of the five youths that were arrested for wearing #BuhariMustGo branded shirts at Dunamis Church.
TheCable learnt the activist, alongside his aide who was doing a live-stream of events in front of the court, was arrested by police officers.
”I have just been arrested by the Nigerian police at the federal high court. Subjected to beatings by police officers and taken to the Federal Secretariat police station,” a message sent to TheCable by the activist said.
But he was later released by the police.
The federal high court is where Nnamdi Kanu’s trial is expected to continue on Monday.
There is a presence of heavy security at the court.
