Sowore’s fresh arraignment over alleged cybercrime stalls

Mr Omoyele Sowore, a presidential hopeful in 2023, was arraigned on cybercrime charges on Wednesday at the Federal High Court in Abuja.

Following accusations from a businessman, Mr Ned Nwoko, the Federal Government filed three-count criminal charges against him.

Although Sowore was present in court to enter his plea, the Sahara Reporters who were accused with him were not there and were not represented by a legal practitioner.
