The governorship candidate of the Action Democratic Party in Lagos State, Babatunde Gbadamosi, has revealed why the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration ordered the released of former National Security Adviser, Sambo Dasuki and the convener of the RevolutionNow movement, Omoyele Sowore.
Recall that the minister of Justice and Attorney General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami, had ordered the release of Dasuki and Sowore from detention.
The minister in a statement noted that they were released in compliance with the bail granted the two by the court.
Gbadamosi, while reacting to the decision of the Federal Government, commended them for releasing Dasuki and Sowore from illegal detention.
The ADP governorship candidate, however, noted that they were released from detention to divert the attention of Nigerians from the attack on the former president, Goodluck Jonathan’s residence.
Gbadamosi on his Twitter account wrote: “I cautiously celebrate the announcement that the FG has ordered the release of Omoyele Sowore and Colonel Sambo Dasuki (rtd.) from illegal detention by the DSS. My cautious approach is based on the diabolical precedents of this tyrannical Buhari government.”
“Thank God for the announcement of the release of Sowore and Dasuki, but I cannot shake the feeling that it was announced to divert attention from last night’s unsuccessful attempt on the life of ex-President Goodluck Jonathan.”
Naija News had earlier reported that some suspected gunmen stormed the residence of the former president situated close to the bank of the river at Otuoke, Ogbia Local Government Area, Bayelsa State on Tuesday.
The attack led to the death of a soldier while about three of the gunmen were also killed by the soldiers, who foiled their attempt to break into the former president’s house.
