Omoyele Sowore first called for the nationwide protest in 2019 but the protesters were met with stiff resistance from the government and security personnel. Omoyele Sowore and scores of protesters were arrested then and sent to detention at the DSS cell.

Weeks after their detention, the protesters were charged to Court on treason and accused of attempt to usurp the buhari administration through revolution by inciting Nigerians against the government in power.
