A group of women, on Thursday, stormed the Federal High Court in Abuja to protest the continued detention of Pro-democracy activist and convener of RevolutionNow Protest, Omoyele Sowore.

The placard wielding elderly women took the protest a notch higher by removing their clothes after they were denied entry into the court premises by security operatives.

Sowore has been in detention since August 2 when he was arrested by the Department of State Service, DSS, for calling for a nationwide protest against perceived maladministration by the President Muhammadu Buhari-led government.

He is answering to a seven-count treasonable felony charge alongside his alleged accomplice, Olawale Bakare (aka Mandate).
