Sowore had called for a nationwide protest asking President Muhammadu Buhari to vacate office on June 12 — Democracy Day.
Sowore and Olawale Bakare, his ally, were arrested on August 4 and 5, 2o19, for planning a nationwide protest.
They were both arraigned at a federal high court in Abuja after spending more than 100 days in detention.
Both of them were eventually released and Sowore was confined to Abuja by the court as part of his bail condition.
