Sowore Arrested by DSS

Pro-democracy Activist, Omoyele Sowore has been arrested by Operatives of the Department of State Services.

A distress tweet by Sowore was made around 1:25am (Saturday Morning) with the content “DSS invades Sowore’s”

He also tweeted  “Ja p”. This confirms that the DSS Operatives forcefully seized his phone while he tried to raise alarm on twitter.

This arrest might not be unconnected with Sowore’s planned #RevolutionNow Protest that was billed to hold on August 5.

Recall that Sowore has consistently been against the high-handedness of political office holders, and has unequivocally stated his commitment to “reclaiming Nigeria” from the claws of Corruption and Nepotism. He flagged AAC’s Presidential Flag in the 2019 Presidential Election, but couldn’t make it to Aso Rock.
