Omoyele Sowore who stormed the court on Tuesday, March 2, 2021, has explained why he went with a native doctor.
The entire internet space went awash with photos and videos, showing a native doctor in court with the activist, Sowore for his trial at the Wuse Zone 2 Magistrates Court in Abuja.
The Revolution Now convener has now described the man as the spiritual leader of the movement.
He also criticised people for referring to the man as a herbalist, saying that Nigerians accept foreign religions as civilised or sophisticated while calling the domestic ones, traditional.
He further noted that the man came to freely express himself in the way he deems comfortable.
This left some staff members of the court and security personals around the premises in awe.
While some say the traditionalist accompanied Sowore to the court in solidarity, some others believe it was for some sort of protection, although Sowore’s reason for appearing in court with the priest is still unascertained.
Recall Sowore was arrested alongside four others on New Year’s Eve for organizing a candlelight procession for some slain Endsars protesters and charged for alleged criminal conspiracy, unlawful assembly, and inciting public disturbance.
