I’ve visited Sowore, he remains ‘unmoved’ – says Deji Adeyanju
Political activist, and an associate of the Publisher of Sahara Reporters, Omoyele Sowore, has said members of the ‘Take it Back’ movement visited him in detention on Monday.
Adeyanju disclosed this in a post on his Facebook wall, which read, “UNBOWED AND UNBROKEN: Take it Back Members visit defiant Sowore in DSS Detention.”
He had written, “At 6pm today, 5th August, 2019, members of the Take it Back Movement were allowed to visit Sowore, for the first time since his armed abduction He’s in high spirit & unmoved.”
“He’s in high spirit and unmoved,” Adeyanju said.
Omoyele, the presidential candidate of the African Action Congress in the February election, was arrested in the early hours of Saturday and taken to Abuja by operatives of the Department of State Services (DSS).
The arrest followed Sowore’s intention to spearhead nationwide protests against the Federal Government, tagged ‘#RevolutionNow Days of Rage,’ scheduled for Monday, August 5, 2019.
The protests held in some states of the federation, during which security agents clashed with protesters, arresting and tear-gassing some, including journalists.
