Reports have claimed that President Muhammadu Buhari have allegedly been attacked by some Nigerians in Abuja House, London over the prolonged detention of Omoyele Sowore by the Department of State Services (DSS).
The Herald earlier reported that some concerned Nigerians took the #FreeSowore protest to the Abuja House in London, on Thursday, November 14.
The reports further claimed that the protesters gathered in front of the building to boo the official who was driven in a black painted car with a Nigerian diplomatic plate number (FGN1).
The protesters were hear saying: “Buhari, Stop Poisoning Sheikh Zakzaky,” one of the placards read. Omoyele Sowore is not a criminal.
“The protesters shouted ‘ole, ole, ole…’ meaning ‘thief, thief, thief….’ while mentioning the name of the Nigerian president. They also condemned the disrespect for the courts by the Nigerian government.”
President Buhari is currently in London for what the presidency described as a private visit. He has spent over a week in the UK during which he has continued to perform the functions of the Nigerian president including signing a bill into law. The Nigerian government or the embassy in the UK is yet to issue a statement on the matter.
