- Dates have been fixed for the resumption of the trial Omoyele Sowore
- The Federal High Court in Abuja chose 11th, 12th and 13th of February 2020 for the proceedings
- The case is to be presided over by Justice Ijeoma Ojukwu
The trial of the embattled human rights activist, Omoyele Sowore, will resume on Wednesday, February 12 at the Federal High Court in Abuja.
The court proceeding which was supposed to begin on Tuesday was stalled due to the absence of Justice Ijeoma Ojukwu, The Nation reports.
Justice Ojukwu, who had earlier fixed 11th, 12th and 13th of February 2020 as dates for the proceedings, was said to have presided over another court case outside the court in Abuja.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng reported that there was a mild drama on Monday, January 27, at one of the public schools in Abuja, the nation's capital, when Sowore arrived at the school to teach either government or geography.
Legit.ng gathered that in a tweet published on his Twitter page on Monday, January 27, Sowore said that he set out to look for a public school where he could teach government or geography while sitting idle in Abuja but to his dismay, the principal disappeared immediately he and his colleagues entered the school premises.
Some of the Twitter users who commented on Sowore's tweet said that the principal should be punished for his action.
A Twitter user, Mohammed Sakiwa, said the principal should be disciplined for allowing such in his school. He said the principal should have challenged Sowore's inappropriate appearance at the school.
Before this, the Attorney-General of the Federation (AGF) and minister of justice, Abubakar Malami, had explained that the release of a former National Security Adviser, Sambo Dasuki, and Sowore from detention was due to the federal government's compassion for the duo.
According to him, the reason for the release of Dasuki and Sowore owes also to the commitment to the rule of law, obedience to court orders.
He stated that both men had multiple options after the court ruling, either to appeal or review the order.
