Sowore Lays Strong Accusation Against DSS
Omoyele Sowore, the convener of #RevolutionNow Movement, has disclosed that he wasn’t allowed access to the telephone in custody of the Department of State Services (DSS).
The Sahara Reporters publisher, however, accused the DSS operatives of allowing arrested Boko Haram commanders in their custody to make calls.
“I am not allowed to see sunshine. I’ve not been outside except today. I am happy people are staying strong,” he is quoted to have said by Sahara Reporters on Monday.
“I have no doubt this will come to an end in favour of the Nigerian people. Whether you like it or not, the revolution will happen. It is only a matter time. They gave me no access to telephone. No TV. No newspapers.
“What is interesting is that Boko Haram commanders who are engaged in high level terrorism have access to telephone, TV and even cable in their cells. So you wonder which one is better: a freedom fighter or a terrorist.”
Recall as previously reported by Naija News, Sowore was arraigned before the federal high court in Abuja on Monday for “conspiracy to commit treason and insulting President Muhammadu Buhari”.
Sowore was arrested in Lagos on August 3 by the DSS ahead of a planned nationwide #RevolutionNow protest.
He was granted bail last week by Justice Taiwo Taiwo but has not been released by the secret police despite fulfilling his bail condition.
