The Reason why DSS is detaining Sowore, Presidency speaks.

    The Presidency on Sunday has have major reasons why the Department of the State Service, DSS is detaining the convener of Revolution Now, Omoyele Sowore.


    While speaking about the reasons in a statement, the presidency has noted the following Actions by Sowore, the DSS does not need the permission of the President, Muhammadu Buhari to their work whether the needs arises

    See full Statement below:

    The presidency has noted some of the Insinuation of the media about the arrest made by the Department of the State Service “DSS” of the activist Omoyele Sowore .

    The DSS does not necessarily need the permission of the presidency in all cases to carry out its essential responsibilities that are laid down in the Nigeria Constitution ” which was the Foundation of democracy in Our Country in 1999
    that Sowore is a person of interest to the DSS.

    Sowore called for a revolution to overthrow the democratically elected government of Nigeria
    He did so on television, and from a privileged position as the owner of a widely read digital newspaper run from the United States of America.

    He founded an organisation, Revolution Now, to launch, in their own words, (Days of Rage) with the publicised purpose of fomenting mass civil unrest and the elected administration’s overthrow.

    No government will allow anybody to openly called for destabilisation in the country and do nothing

    Sowore is no ordinary citizen expressing his views freely on social media and the internet. He was a presidential candidate himself, who ran and lost as the flag bearer of the African Action Congress (AAC) in the February 23 general elections

    Nigeria’s democracy was a long time in the making and was achieved after decades of often harsh , military led overthrows of government ” the kind of situation Sowore was advocating.

    To believe in and desire armed revolution is not normal amongst ‘human rights activists’, as Sowore has been incorrectly described.

    Again, it is no surprise that he should be a person of interest to the DSS. Nigeria is already dealing with an insurgency that has left millions of people displaced and desperate in the northeastern region of our country.

    The Boko Haram militants, who are behind the violence, also fancy themselves to be fighting for some sort of revolution.

    Nigerians do not need another spate of lawlessness and loss of lives all in the name of ‘revolution’, especially not one that is orchestrated by a man who makes his home in far away New York and who can easily disappear and leave behind whatever instability he intends to cause, to wit, Nnamdi Kanu.
