‘Babalawo’ Storms Court In Solidarity With Sowore

The unexpected happened on Tuesday when an unidentified man clad in the outfit of a ‘babalawo’ stormed the premises of a magistrate court sitting in Wuse Zone 2, Abuja.

‘Babalawo’ is a spiritual title that denotes a priest of the Ifá oracle.

‘Babalawos’ are believed to possess the power to ascertain the future of their clients through communication with supernatural beings.

People present in court were shocked when the individual in the full ‘babalawo’ regalia arrived in the company of Omoyele Sowore, convener of the #RevolutionNow movement.

He wore a knee-length robe with red and black stripes — and a cap to match.

The robe, embellished with white cowries, had snail shells and little calabashes hanging on like light bulbs on a Christmas tree.

The ‘babalawo’ also had the head of a cat hanging down his neck.

The #RevolutionNow leader described the man as a Nigerian who came to show his support for him.

Sowore and four others were arraigned on a three-count charge bordering on conspiracy, unlawful assembly, and incitement.
