#FreeSowore: Aso Rock Can’t Sustain Repression of Dissent — Ezekwesili
A former Minister of Education and human rights activist, Mrs. Oby Ezekwesili, has condemned the arrest of publisher of Sahara Reporters/presidential candidate of the African Action Congress in the February 2019 general election, Mr. Omoyele Sowore.
Operatives of the Department of State Services arrested Sowore in the early hours of Saturday at about 1.25 a.m. in his apartment.
Taking to her verified Twitter handle @obyezeks on Saturday, Ezekwesili, also a presidential candidate of the Allied Congress Party of Nigeria in the same election, had tweeted:
Hmmmm. @AsoRock ought to know that they cannot sustain this unconstitutional habit of repression against #CitizensRights. All these persistent acts of @NGRPresident to shrink the Public Space with rabid level of intolerance for dissension will surely fail.#FreeSoworeNow!
