The Federal Government has arraigned Omoyele Sowore and his co-defendant, Mr Olawale Bakare.
However, the Counsel to Omoyele Sowore and his co-defendant, Mr Olawale Bakare was absent in court this morning.
Sowore and Olawale Bakare are being arraigned by the Federal Government on seven charges bordering on an alleged conspiracy to commit treason, money laundering, and insulting the President, among others.

The arraignment comes one week after Justice Taiwo ordered the release of Mr Sowore, more than five days after a detention order the judge issued against him elapsed.
Making appearances for the defendants A. Olumide said he is holding brief for his colleague, Femi Falana who is outside the country.
However, Olumide said the defendants are not in position to take an appeal. He said one of the reasons for his objection to arraignment is that part of the law states that the defendants in a matter should have access to their lawyers. He said this will allow them to either plead guilty or not.
