The Federal Government may have allegedly concluded plans to arrest and detain the recently released human rights journalist and Publisher of Sahara Reporters, Omoyele Sowore for alerting Nigerians on the state of health of the Chief of Staff to the President, Abba Kyari.
Sowore raised the alarm on his Facebook page late on Wednesday. He said President Muhammadu Buhari has sent a high powered delegation to meet with the Chief Judge of Federal High Court of Nigeria, John Tsoho.
Folks: It is important to inform you that we are facing some unusual circumstances, and the days ahead might be very tense and difficult, but we will conquer.
Following the revelation by SaharaReporters that the Chief of Staff. Abba Kyari contracted Corona Virus and subsequent revelations about the criminal conducts/negligence that has brought Nigeria to the nadir of this global pandemic, the Buhari regime today sent some high powered delegation to the Chief Judge of the Federal High Court of NIGERIA to help procure a judge to grant a detention order against me. The courts are reportedly on break due to COVID-19 pandemic.
This was leaked to our lawyers a few minutes ago. They plan this time is to use the Nigerian Army for the sinister plot. The plan is to obtain a court order and then send soldiers to shoot up my residence in Abuja by claiming that I resisted arrest with armed colleagues, if I am arrested alive they would take me to an Army Barracks in Abuja to be tortured and /or infected with COVID-19. I am not raising the alarm to scare anyone, it is to inform our compatriots that we should brace for difficult days ahead.
However, rest assured that we are in high spirits and are totally convinced that we may be turning a historic corner in the face of brutal repression.
“I am urging all to stand firm, unbowed and unbroken’ he declared.
It is pertinent to note that Department of State Security arrested and detained Sowore for months, in clear violation of all Court declarations under a democratic setting, ordering his release from the state custody on phoney charges of treason.
He was only released with stringent conditions following international outcry and threats of sanctions by the United States.
