Omoyele Sowore, presidential hopeful seeking to represent the African Action Congress (AAC) in the 2023 general election, has held a rally inside a river in Ondo state.

 

Sowore had, on March 1, declared his intention to contest the presidency.

 

He was also the candidate of the AAC in the 2019 general election.

 

Sowore, who was arrested by operatives of the Department of State Services (DSS) on August 2, 2019, was granted bail by different courts, but the agency had failed to release the activist until December 2019.

 

In October 2019, a federal high court in Abuja had granted a N100 million bail to Sowore, convener of #RevolutionNow Movement.

 

Ijeoma Ojukwu, the presiding judge, had also restricted Sowore from speaking with journalists and travelling outside Abuja.

 

Dissatisfied with the ruling of the federal high court, the AAC presidential candidate had approached the court of appeal seeking to set aside the conditions that restricted him from addressing public gatherings and leaving the FCT.

 

Delivering judgment in the appeal on April 13, 2022, the appellate court held that the ruling restricting the activist to Abuja was excessive.

 

In a caption shared on Tuesday, Sowore said he visited the Opotuo river in his hometown in Ondo state.

 

According to him, the last time he was at the river was when he was nine years old.

 

Below are photos of the rally in the river.
