Sahara Reporter Publisher Omoyele Sowore Arrested Over Planned Revolution Move Against Buhari Government

DSS Arrests Sahara Reporter Publisher Omoyele Sowore To Stop Planned Revolution Move Against Buhari Government

The publisher of Sahara Reporters, Omoyele Sowore has been moved to Abuja.

The online news portal broke the news on Sunday morning in a “flash” post on their site.

Sowore was arrested in the early hours of Saturday, by armed security operatives, believed to be from the Department of State Services (DSS).

The activist had been making claims of leading a “revolution” against “bad governance”, which was to kick off on Monday.

However, Inspector General of Police (IGP), Mr. Mohammed Adamu, had on Saturday described as “treasonable felony and an act of terrorism” calls for revolution against the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration.

In a statement, the police boss vowed to deal decisively against anyone or group that tries to.

According to the police chief, the objective of the protest, was to force a regime change, hence the determination of the force to assert its will, in the interest of the state.

Force Public Relations Officer (FPRO), DCP Frank Mba, who conveyed the IGP’s warning in a statement yesterday, said the Force will not watch idly, while acts of “terrorism” were being plotted.

    “revolution” my foot.

    Obasanjo being one of the instigators shows that this silly protest is lopsided. Abeg, tell us exactly what obj did in his 8yrs tenure?.

    As for Sowore, the guy owns business in new york. It is very possible he is a funded tout. We have experienced western ppl funded citizens of foreign countries int heir country to destabilize their home countries. I am not saying the same is happening with Sowore but it is very highly possible. If there is level of sincerity in this si called revolution, they should start locally. But this way they are doing it by taking their vex to macro level is bound to fail.

    Fed govt always fun state and local govts. Therefore, the first revolution must start with traditional rulers. Those Obas are nothing but fat ass embezzlers. What exactly are they doing in their palaces?. What exactly is their responsibilities to the people of their communities?. The local region are so bad and structurally and also cult infested. Take a look at Ijebu-Ode, this historic town is far worst than 20yrs ago yet they have traditional ruler sitting on his ass doing nothing. They have local govt chairmen just looting but they keep lying that federal govt gave them little to nothing. And then they have state govt who did substandard road that messed up within a week. Yet they are blaming Buhari.

    Revolution must start from locally. Taking your anger and frustrations to federal govt is very silly. Even if they succeed and achieve thier aim, federal govt isnt gonna deal with them directly, They deal with traditional rulers, local and sate govt. And these aforementioned will mess up over again and you keep blaming federal govt. Start your protest from the scratch by probing obas, local govt authority and state authority. This is the way to go about it in my humble opinion.
