Aare Onakakanfo of Yorubaland, Iba Gani Adams has joined other Nigerians calling for the release of the presidential candidate of the African Action Congress (ACC), Omoyele Sowore.
The publisher of Sahara Reporters and convener, Global Coalition for Security and Democracy in Nigeria, was arrested by the Department of State Services (DSS) over a planned revolutionary protest which held in some states but was foiled by security agencies.
In a statement on Monday by his Special Assistant on Media, Kehinde Aderemi, Adams said the detention was an abuse of human right, stating that the planned revolutionary protest cannot be said to be treasonable since it was yet to be implemented as at the time Sowore was arrested.
Adams said it was unfortunate that Nigerians usually forget events and memories of the past, adding that Nigeria’s problems emanated from the military’s dictatorship which was against freedom of speech and expression.
