Sowore’s Detention: UK Government Asks FG To Respect Rule Of Law by Nobody: 1:23pm On Dec 11, 2019
Like the United States through its Department of State and high-ranking senators, the United Kingdom has also spoken out over the rearrest and rights violation of pro-democracy campaigner and journalist, Omoyele Sowore, by the Nigerian Government.

First arrested on August 3, 2019 by the Department of State Services for calling on Nigerians to pour out to the streets in peaceful demonstrations to demand a better country from the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari, Sowore was again on Friday arrested inside the Federal High Court in Abuja less than 24 hours after he was released on bail after 125 days in detention during which time two court orders had directed his freedom but floured by the government.

He was standing trial in a case brought against him by the Nigerian Government when the DSS invaded the court to forcefully take him away.

The Nigerian Government is accusing Sowore of insulting President Buhari and planning to bring down his regime.

The situation has drawn criticisms from around the world with many calling on the regime of Buhari to respect the rule of law and Sowore's right to bail and fair hearing and immediately release him.

Also reacting to the situation, the UK Government through the British High Commission in Nigeria on Tuesday in a post on Twitter called on Buhari to respect the rule of law as regards Sowore's case.

It said in a tweet, "We are following closely the continued detention of #Sowore.

"Respect for the rule of law and free and responsible speech are fundamental for #democracy."

Earlier in the week, a coalition of civil society groups gave the Buhari administration a two-week ultimatum to release Sowore or face mass action.

There have been similar pronouncement from other groups all calling on the Nigerian Government to do the right thing.

"..The 1999 Constitution also spells out the basic rights but the regime chooses which rights or court orders to respect or obey.This is totally unacceptable.

“Respect for the rule of law, judicial independ-ence, political and media freedom, and due process are key tenets of democracy.”

Lol. I remember when Buhari was jetted to Chatham house in the UK by Tinubu, where he addressed the world press during which he said he's now a reformed Democrat and no more a dictator. Now they'd be like, tinubu can you remember what your man said when you brought him here ahead of 2015 elections? grin . Sowore's treatment by buhari would discourage them from trusting us subsequently. Any leader who fails to respect the rule of law which upholds the office he occupies is worse than an ape.

Major General Mohammed Buhari deceived Nigerians he was a reformed democrat. Majority of voters including the BMC crew were not born during his tyrannical reign in the 80's. A leopard does not change his spots.

okk! Let's simplify this case, Mr A said he is going to rob Mr B. Mr B went to the police that Mr A said he is going to rob him. The police arrested Mr A and questioned him and he admitted.

What can the police do?
Mr. A can only be advised and be ask to sign undertaking.
Police can keep watch on Mr. A

what the police can not do:
Mr. A cant be detained indefinitely by the police.

Mr. A cant be charge to court cause he never
committed the act

And if MR. A is charged to court, he will be acquitted or ask to pay fine for psychological trauma.


pls this is democracy, this not about sowore or the federal govt we just have to follow rule of law or settle for chaos. My 2cent!

Nigeria is a sovereign state they have no right to caution us over anything.

Dear wailers, I voted for General Buhari, not PMB. If you like to call him Saddam Hussain is your own cup of tea we still love him.

God bless General Muhammadu Buhari.
