Charges against Sowore confirms Buhari government's unprecedented level of paranoia — Wole Soyinka

Nobel Laureate, Prof Wole Soyinka has described the charges against Omoyele Sowore as a confirmation of the Buhari-led administration's unprecedented level of paranoia.

Revealing that he first dismissed the report as fake news, Soyinka added that 'Sowore's Issue' has moved beyond harassment and taken on a sinister direction. He further stated that the nation had failed to learn from past experiences.

He said, “This is utterly depressing news. So, the Sowore affair has moved beyond harassment and taken on a sinister direction. Outside the country where I happened to be engaged at the moment, I can testify that the immediate reaction around me was to dismiss this as yet another grotesque product of fake news, of which Nigerians have become the greatest practitioners. I confess that I also joined in this school of thought – at the start.

“Further checks have however confirmed that this government has indeed attained an unprecedented level of paranoia. I do not believe that the Justice department itself believes in these improbable charges, as formally publicised. So, once again, we inscribe in our annals another season of treasonable felony, History still guards some lessons we have yet to digest, much less from which to learn. Welcome to the Club, Mr. Omoyele Sowore.”

Recall that the Nigerian government filed a 7 count charge against Omoyele Sowore a day to the expiration of the 45-day detention order they obtained against the 2019 Presidential candidate of the African Action Congress in August. The charges centered on treasonable felony, insulting President Buhari and money laundering.

Sowore should know that what goes around comes around. He should enjoy Buhari. If possible he should even go for a 3rd term so he can complete all his projects.He thinks Buhari is Jonathan abi. He caused most of the negative reports around Jonathan in the build up towards the 2015 election. They said Jonathan was weak, they should enjoy a stronger president in Buhari, Una never see anything, by the time Buhari is done with you guys Una go know say shoe get size.

it's glaring to all that this regime is a
dictatorship cloaked in civilian democracy.

the legislature who has majority seat is from the president party n judicial head was hand picked by the president.
the security apparatus is the attack apparatus of the executive. what or who can stand against the executive

do u guys remember how Buhari attacked the previous government. do u remember all the numerous protests

do u remember how people could say almost anything about the presidency and get away with it

now it's all gone every divergent view is sniffed off mercilessly

it just a sad situation, a realisation that we the citizens of this country can be taken for a ride and we cowardly accept and play the ostrich

however, we all must remember, power is transient....this too shall pass

Prof please be blunt and bold as you were.

Call the spade a spade, so that we can treat it like a spade and not a shovel.

False!


Sowore should get good lawyers to defend him.

The Federal Government have all the cards to send him to long term jail. He shot himself in the leg and he must feel the pains.

He thinks the FG is OAU, They will help him waste the remaining 40years left for him to exist on Earth.


Nnamadi Kanu should come to Nigeria and demand for his release. Oh! I forgot,he also has forgotten his brothers in prison

These people dont know nothing. And they are making a grave mistake if they think because the Yoruba are calm they can finish that boy .

In as much as Yoruba appear to be docile on Sowore matter, if anything happens to him...
APC will run from SouthWest.

Sowore na Dagunro... you cant eat it and live to be comfortable.

PMB is a Traitor....an Inyenzi...Advanced Nincompoop.

I thought Osinbajo is a Professor of Law. He seems to be undisturbed by this lawlessness characterised by Jubril the Herdsman.

Its quite unfortunate that we are divided along ethnic and religious line. That is why we cannot be united to stage a successful protest when a govt in power is being exposed for various atrocities. Imagine a govt detaining someone with the excuse that he or she constitutes a national threat against court order that directed for his release.

Hahahaha! From the very start, I never wanted buhari in government but now, I'm enjoying him. He is dealing with those who brought him in power the most hahaha. You think it's Jonathan's time when at any slightest provocation, you would come out and protest and be happy. Try it now and you go to jail. It's unfortunate Sowore refused to learn like the others. Now, whenever there's the need for protest, these set of people that used to carry protest on their heads would be faking meetings and appointments just to escape.

PMB is already showing his true colors to all Nigerians including those that voted for him. In their hearts most PMB supporters are disappointed that he has nothing to over except sorrows and pains.
A staunch supporter of PMB came told us yesterday that his life was better financially under Jonathan. Is it not ironical that PMB supporters are asking those that did not vote for PMB for handouts and financial assistance? Hunger is already resetting the heads of most Nigerians who voted with sentiments.
