Nigerian authorities have detained journalist Omoyele Sowore a day after his bail was upheld by a high court.

Images on Friday show Mr Sowore pinned to the floor during scuffles with state security agents at a court hearing.

The former presidential candidate and founder of the news site Sahara Reporters was first detained in August after he called for revolution.

Despite being granted bail in October, authorities have continued to hold him, sparking an outcry from his supporters.

His co-defendant Olawale Bakare is also in the custody of state security services.

In videos shared by Sahara Reporters, several men attempted to drag Mr Sowore from an Abuja courtroom where he had been summoned for a hearing.
