RevolutionNow: Release Sowore, Gani Adams appeals to FG


The Aare Onakakanfo of Yorubaland , Gani Adams has appealed to the Federal Government to release the presidential candidate of the African Action Congress, Omoyele Sowore .
Adams said that such arrest portends grave danger for Nigeria ’ s democracy .
The publisher of SaharaReporters and convener Global Coalition for Security and Democracy in Nigeria was arrested by the operatives from the Department of State Services over a planned revolutionary protest scheduled for Monday, August 5 .
The Police had accused the activist of a plot to force a regime change in the country .
Reacting in a statement , Adams said the arrest was an abuse of human right to freedom , stating that the planned revolutionary protest could not be said to be treasonable since it was yet to be implemented before he was arrested by the DSS .

Adams , who faulted the rationale behind the arrest , said it was unfortunate that Nigerians usually forgot events and memories of the past .
He said that Nigeria ’ s problems emanated from the military’ s dictatorship and tendency to gag the press and prevent freedom of speech and expression .
Aare Onakakanfo however , said with the information at his disposal, the convener did not consult many of the civil society groups.
The planned protest , he admitted , would have presented to Nigerians, the needed opportunity to express their feelings to President Muhammadu Buhari .
Adams said that Nigerians were entitled to express their feelings, provided the protest was peaceful and violent-free and it also represented the feelings of Nigerians
