There was mild drama at the Magistrate Court in Wuse Zone 2, Abuja on Tuesday as a native doctor dressed in full regalia accompanied Sahara Reporters publisher, Omoyele Sowore in solidarity.
The traditionalist was seen waving his horsewhip and gourd in the air while chanting ahead of the commencement of trial.
Court workers, journalists, police officers, and other visitors looked on in surprise as the native doctor said to be a spiritual adviser entered the court premises alongside Sowore.
