Sowore Speaks From DSS Detention, Assures Supporters Of Safety And Well-Being 3

The members of Take it Back Movement were allowed to visit their convener, Omoyele Sowore, for the first time since his arm abduction in a Lagos hotel by operatives of the Department of State Services in the early hours last Saturday, the 3rd of August.

According to Sahara Reporters, the visitors met Sowore in high spirits, unmoved by the events of the last few days.

The officers allowed the guests to present him with food as Sowore had refused all meals since his capture.

“We are also happy to confirm that Take it Back members will be allowed to bring him food daily as per his wishes,” Rachel Onamusi-Kpiasi, Director, Media and Communication of the movement, said in a statement on Monday evening.

The freedom fighter was quick to ask about Movement and Party faithfuls as he is aware that there will be a lot of worry about his wellbeing, and would like to assure everyone that he is being treated well and is in very good health.

He is pleased that the peaceful #RevolutionNow protests he called Nigerians to stand for went ahead, and has expressed his dismay at knowledge of the sheer number of innocent Nigerians being arrested for exercising their civil rights.

He is greatly concerned about the wellbeing of all those arrested and /or affected by today’s heavy handed police action, and joins in demanding for their immediate release.

“I would like to assure everyone that I am being treated well and in very good health.

“I am pleased that the peaceful #RevolutionNow protests went ahead.

“However, knowledge of the sheer number of innocent Nigerians being arrested for exercising their civil rights bothers me.

“I join others in demanding for the immediate and unconditional release of all those arrested by the police on Monday.”

Rachel Onamusi-Kpiasi said Indeed, the silver lining in today’s unrest lies in the knowledge that the truly, you cannot stop an idea whose time has come.

The Take it Back Movement said it will continue to agitate for his release as well as that of every single comrade whose voice this oppressive regime has tried to silence.

The group said the visit was a small win; but will not rest until “we are free and free indeed.”
