Sowore Raises Alarm Over Death Threat

1 min read

Human Rights activist and Convener of #RevolutionNow Movement, Omoyele Sowore, has revealed plot by the Nigerian Government to arrest and kill him.

The alarm by the activist comes as the President Muhammadu Buhari-led government continues its clampdown on major actors and promoters of the #ENDSARS protest.

In a post on Twitter on Wednesday, Sowore said that the Nigerian military had put a bounty on his head for him to be either arrested or killed.

 Sowore was arrested in the early hours of August 3, 2019 by operatives of the Department of State Services for calling on Nigerians to take to the streets in peaceful demonstrations on August 5 to demand a better country from the administration of President Buhari.

He was kept in unlawful detention from that period until December 5, 2019 when he was finally released on bail despite two court orders earlier sanctioning his freedom.

In a twist of events, DSS operatives invaded the Federal High Court in Abuja on December 6, 2019 to rearrest him without any court order.
