No Going Back On Revolution Wether They Like It Or Not – Sowore Says After Arrai by sharpden: 2:59pm On Sep 30, 2019
Omoyele Sowore, the detained publisher of Sahara Reporters, has said there will be no going back on revolution across the country.

Mr Sowore stated this after being arraigned on a seven count charge of treasonable felony, fraud and cyber stalking at a Federal High Court in Abuja.

The presidential candidate of the African Action Congress (AAC) in the last general election was arrested early last month for spearheading a revolutionary protest which the government described as an attempted coup to overthrow the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari.

He was taken to court by the Department of State Services (DSS) who have continued to detain the publisher despite a court order that he be released.

Addressing his supporters before being taken back to its custody by operatives of the security agency, Sowore said there will be no going back on the revolution which is expected across the country.

“Ladies and gentlemen, please do not worry, we are on top of this,” he said in company of his legal counsels.

“We are going to have a revolution, wether they like it or not,” he added.

Although he was absent on the scheduled day the revolution protest being planned by his group took off, some of his supporters managed to stage the protest amidst intimidation by security agencies.

The protest was aimed at drawing the attention of the government to rising cases of kidnappings, killings among other criminal activities bedeviling the nation.

Judge orders continued detention

Delivering her ruling, Justice Ijeoma Ojukwu, ordered the continued detention of the publisher by the DSS.

The judge said the bail earlier granted Sowore was not given on the charges on which he was arraigned on Monday, that a fresh bail had to be applied for.

She added that if she would have to grant fresh bail, it had to be based on the formal written application and not oral.

Ojukwu asked the defendants counsel to file a formal bail application, and adjourned the hearing to Friday.
