WE WILL RISE AGAINST OPPRESSION, OUR VENGEANCE WILL BE THE LAST
“Exactly this month last year, OMOYELE SOWORE spent some 27 days in a detention cell in solitary confinement, LAWLESS DSS obtained a 45-days detention order from a Federal Judge, Justice Taiwo Taiwo claiming they were investigating him for ” terrorism “. His lawyer, Femi Falana , SAN went back to the Federal High Court in Abuja asking them to review his unjust detention, the vacation judges did not budge until the ignoble regime and its goons manufactured new charges that were completely unrelated to terrorism.
Some months after, a court in a gestappo manner and well masterminded judgement ordered a CITY BAN ON SOWORE around ABUJA , prior to a global streamed national awakening, for a better and improved state of the nation, which sowore affirmed was overdue, the aftermath of the event was shocking in experience, and devastating in revelation. For he was brazenly dehumanized, brutalized, enchained and assaulted alongside some contigents of activists who ideally came down to identify themselves with the struggle for a better NATION, the least we can say is they weren’t balkanize by the blood letting State Security Agents . It’s been 2 years plus already and the government , particularly the courts, which should serve as the opium of the common man, is not finding a soft landing.
Sequel, to the Court’s verdict on his restriction to the ABUJA CITY , particularly as a Soworeist ourself, we put a call through to the Officer In Charge of the FORCE CID, ABUJA , Mr. Usman Alkali whose digits was shared by concerned activists at the material time of the happenstance , and who frantically refuted claims of putting Omoyele Sowore in his detention facility, and argued that the Chief magistrate gave 5 detention orders on Sowore and his disciples and that his lawyer and others who accompany him or them , were brought to his ( Alkali) facility on their request , rather than the prison until the Magistrate approve their request for cordon.
According to Inspector Alkali nobody gave him the instruction that he (Sowore) should be taken back to court , and that he (Alkali) doesn’t even want SOWORE in his detention facility.
As if the Injustice melted on him wasn’t enough, recently the system he is purging out of insecurity snuffed life out of his little brother, OLAJIDE SOWORE , the robust and promising pharmacist, the unfortunate incidence, which is in the gazette already, is amongst the many atrocities going round the NATION. A notorious confirmation of the many killings and maslaughter going round the government in its many incompetence!
Civil disobedience is not our problem. Our problem is civil obedience. Our problem is that people all over the world have obeyed dictates of leaders…….and millions have been killed because of this obedience……Our problem is that people are obedient all over the world in the face of starvation and poverty, stupidity, war, and cruelty. Our problem is that people are obedient, while the jails are full of petty thieves…..(and) the grand thieves are running our country. That’s our problem.
2 years and still counting SOWORE is being held hostage without any substantial proof of conviction by the government , but his family , friends, and life completely blocked-off.
YET, his prophecies are materializing and becoming evident!
As law abiding Nigerians, who hold the spirits of the laws in high esteem , we are sounding an uncompromising note of warning to General Muhammadu Buhari and his emissaries, imploring they bite the humble pie, by ensuring the unconditional release and legality of his fundamental human rights as enshrined in the 1999 constitution ( as amended ).
Else, we will communicate to him in the language he understands. We do hope that the President is well informed about our antecedent as activists, the bourgeoning ones gaining global momentum. We will pay him a COURTESY VISIT.
