An Abuja Chief Magistrate Court sitting at Wuse Zone 2, on Tuesday, adjourned the trial of activist and convener of #RevolutionNow protest, Mr Omoleye Sowore and his co-Defendants, to May 7.

The adjournment came on a day a man dressed as a native doctor, stormed the court in solidarity with the Defendants.

Though the young man who is in his 30s declined to disclose his name, he however described himself as Sowore’s spiritual advisor.

He wore a black and red-striped robe that terminated by his kneel, with a cap made from the same material.

The self-confessed spiritual advisor to Sowore also tied a red wrapper around his waist, even as he held a middle-sized calabash in his right hand.

Other items like white cowries, snail shell and an object that looked like a dried skull of an animal, were attached to his red robe.

Sowore walked into the court premises with the supposed ‘babalawo’ (native doctor), shortly before the proceedings commenced in the case against him.
