called on President Muhammadu Buhari to order the immediate release of
Omoyele Sowere, convener of the RevolutionNow movement, who was arrested
by operatives of the Department of State Services in the early hours of
Saturday in Lagos.
Secondus made the call on Tuesday in Yola, capital of Adamawa State,
when he paid a condolence visit to Governor Ahmadu Fintiri following the
demise of his father, Umaru Badami.
He said, “I’m calling on President Buhari to release Sowore immediately
and unconditionally because this is not done in any democracy.
“What is happening today makes us feel we are in a military era. They
should also release all political prisoners.”
