The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu and Shehu Sani, former Kaduna Central Senator has taken to their Twitter pages to condemn the arrest of Omoyele Sowore by the Department of State Services (DSS) operatives.
Concise News had reported that Sowore, the convener of #RevolutionNow Protests, was picked up at his apartment in the early hours of Saturday.
The human rights activist posted a distress tweet at exactly 1:25 am with an eyewitness confirming that his phone was forcefully taken from him.
Nnamdi Kanu while reacting to the incident said, “Fulani tyranny & primitive dictatorship will never win this war against the massed ranks of oppressed people in Nigeria.”
“Suppressing the right to protest in a so-called democracy will only hasten the collapse of that ZOO.#FreeSowore & allow the #RevolutionNow right to protest.” he added.
In a relative vein, Shehu Sani on Twitter wrote, “Our democracy is a block of ice floating on warm waters.
“The sponsored protest and attacks on the @AmnestyNigeria stands condemned. The arrest & detention of @YeleSowore is needless.I join the call for his release #FreeSowore.”
