DSS rearrest Sowore in Court

Publisher of Sahara Reporters, Omoyele Sowore, has marked his 15th wedding anniversary in detention.

Mr Sowore has been in the custody of the Department of State Security (DSS) since August 2 in the wake of a nationwide movement termed #RevolutionNow which he was overseeing.

A Federal High Court in Abuja had on August 28 refused to grant the motion filed by Sowore challenging his detention for 45 days by the DSS.

Remembering the activist’s 15th wedding anniversary to wife, Opeyemi, rapper Eedris Abdulkareem, in an Instagram post on Thursday, prayed for bliss in Sowore’s marriage in the face of his “sacrifice for Nigeria today.”

Abdulkareem said: “Fifteen years ago you tied the nuptial knots that still binds you till date in love and oneness!

“Love so real and so compassionate as yours makes the world go round and of course, it breaks through any man-made barriers like subjugation, gagging, imprisonment and utterly dehumanizing intimidation and treachery.

“So as you sacrifice for Nigeria today, may this Anniversary sprout out a bountiful, blessed and glorious tomorrow for you! Happy Anniversary once again! Many more conjugal bliss ahead as years come and ago!!! Freedom…”

Sowore’s wife, Opeyemi, had in an interview on a TV show in the US, Democracy Now!, said the Federal Government pinned its grievance on Sowore on a meeting he had with the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu.

“They also mentioned he may have taken money from international countries, and he met them in Dubai. He has never been to Dubai before, which was an interesting statement on the Nigerian government’s part. And no money, basically, has been found with him,” she said.

Sowore and wife have two children together.
