Release Sowore now, protest not intended to upset FG’s agenda — Ohaneze Ndigbo Youth

1 comments


The youth wing of pan-Igbo socio-cultural organisation, Ohaneze Ndigbo, has called for the immediate release of the Convener of the #RevolutionNow protest, Omoyele Sowore.

The group decried government’s disruption of the protest, which it said was not intended to upset Federal Government’s agenda.


In a statement yesterday by the group’s National Leader Ambassador Arthur Uchenna Obiorah, the organisation said Sowore’s detention fell below international standard.

It asked the leaders to read between the lines to discover the protesters’ demand in the general interest of the country.

The statement reads: “We refute the claims that the group’s intention was to upset the government agenda. The authority should read between the lines and decode the true messages behind the nationwide agitations.

“We request an unconditional release of the presidential candidate of the Africa Action Congress (AAC), Omoyele Sowore, whose detention by men of the Department of State Services (DSS) has fallen below international standard that allows freedom of association, expression and assemblage of men of like-minds.

“The nation is in dire need of a national conference where most of the questions itemised by Sowore are considered for implementation.

“The clamour for RevolutionNow by Nigerians should be well thought about; it is an avenue where Nigerians explore to pour out their minds on the state of the nation in protest against what they feel is not right within the context of the universal coverage.”

The youth wing urged President Muhammadu Buhari to reconsider the earlier request by Southern and Middle Belt leaders for restructuring of the country to devolve powers to the federating units.
