Human rights activist, Omoyele Sowore has told members of Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) not to give up in their demand for justice for their leader, Nnamdi Kanu. 

Kanu is standing trial for alleged terrorism, treasonable felony, illegal possession of arms, among others levelled against him by the Nigerian government.

The activist had earlier been arrested by a combined team of operatives of Department of State Service (DSS) and police while on his way to court to show solidarity with the IPOB leader and observe the hearing of five activists arrested at Dunamis International Gospel Centre (Glory Dome) for wearing #BuhariMustGo T-shirts. 

He charged the IPOB members not to be intimidated by the harassment by security operatives but to continue to demand the release of their leader, saying President Muhammadu Buhari would soon be tired.

Sowore was received by a large number of IPOB members who thronged the court to show support for their leader. 

He said, "Don't give up, Buhari will be tired."  The protesters were seen singing, "Holy! Holy!! Nnamdi Kanu Is Another Soldier."
