Oluwatosin Adeniji, an activist and member of the RevolutionNow Movement, has accused the leader of the movement, Omoyele Sowore, of pocketing an #EndSARS grant which she claimed he applied for on her behalf in 2020.

Adeniji was arrested alongside five others in front of the National Assembly complex, Abuja last November for staging an #EndSARS protest but later released on bail.

In series of tweets on Tuesday, Adeniji said that Sowore and his lawyer, Tope Akinyode, applied for a grant in her name, but the funds were not released to her.

According to Adeniji, she was in police custody last November, when Sowore and his lawyer applied for the grant in her name, without her knowledge.

She tweeted: “@YeleSowore It’s sad that you of all people could take advantage of my predicament. I went to prison last year November over #EndSARS but you decided to apply for a grant in my name without informing me, before, during, and after the application was made. Not even my consent, yet we live under the same roof.

“Fast forward to January, I found out that a grant was applied for in my name but since you @YeleSowore was in detention I had to ask your lawyer @TopeAkinyod because I found out that he was the lawyer involved in the process.

“He admitted they you both applied for a grant in my name but you didn’t tell me because he feels you want to make it a surprise and that he doesn’t know the current status that I should find out from you @yelesowore.

“Since @topeakinyode said it was meant to be a surprise, I waited this long hoping you will inform me but you didn’t. I decided to take the bold step yesterday by demanding my grant funds from you.

“First, you admitted that a grant was applied for in my name through Late Innocent Chukwuma but you are not sure he submitted the application till his death. You also raised concerns that it is possible that Late Innocent submitted the application and someone went behind your back to get the funds.

“This sounds absolutely unbelievable, especially coming from a man of your kind who would cross seven seas to unravel a mystery.

“Also, you said to me that the reason I wasn’t informed was that you wanted @topeakinyode to open a human rights office in Abuja with the funds but Tope revealed to me in our conversation this morning that there was a separate application for that purpose.

“When I insisted that I must get my funds from you, you then said it wasn’t you that applied but @topeakinyode did. I reached out to @topeakinyode immediately and he said he wrote a concept paper for a grant in my name on YOUR INSTRUCTIONS (To which I have evidences)

“When I further insisted on getting my grant from you, you and Tope connived to reverse your words and denied out rightly that no grant was ever applied for in my name (whereas I have evidence of Tope admitting to it many time before this plotted denial).

“I really feel oppressed and sad that after giving my commitment to serve in your movement for years to fight a system of oppression, the same you is this person dishing out all this oppression and lies just to get away with it.”

But Sowore denied the accusations on his Twitter page, saying he never applied for or received any grants in her name or her behalf.

He said: “@callmerahila reached out to me earlier claiming a grant app was written in her name and I have confirmed to her that nothing of such existed. Further I volunteered to refund her if any grant was collected on her behalf without her knowledge!

“Without prejudice to any further action she will take! Pls note that this response is not intended as an attack on @callmerahila, she’s been a committed member of our movt over these yrs and assisted me in the last two years in particular while I was unjustly detained. Thanks!

“Lastly, if anyone knows of any foundation that issued a grant on her behalf without her knowledge kindly reveal it to the public so that she can get her rightful entitlement. I never applied for or received any grants in her name or her behalf!”

This comes a few weeks after Sowore and his supporters clashed with members of his party, the African Alliance Congress at the INEC headquarters in Abuja.
