Sowore

Wife of Omoyele Sowore a political activist, Opeyemi has berated the President Muhammadu Buhari led federal government for detaining her husband over the call for the #RevolutionNow protest.

Naija News reports that Sowore, the Publisher of SaharaReporters, was arrested by operatives of the Department of State Services (DSS) at his hotel in Lagos on August 3.

Sowore was later transferred to Abuja while the DSS secured a court order to detain him for 45 days.

In an application filed at a federal high court in Abuja two weeks after his arrest, Nigeria’s secret police accused Sowore of conspiring with Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), to overthrow the government of President Buhari.

But speaking on Democracy Now, a news programme in the US, Opeyemi demanded an immediate release of her husband.

She also narrated how her husband contacted her, via text message, shortly before he was picked up.

Opeyemi stated that she and her children had spoken to him just twice since his arrest.
