..Calls for his thorough investigation
By Achadu Gabriel, kaduna
Group under the aegis of genuine #EndSARS protesters have called on the federal government to arrest the publisher of SaharaReporters, Omoyele Sowore, over alleged breaching the conditions of the bail granted him following his earlier arrest and detention by the Department of State Service, DSS, for alleged treason.
While commending Nigeria Police for rising to the occasion on Friday by dispersing a handful of “misguided youths assembled at the gate of the National Assembly by the so-called activist to foment trouble under the pretext of #EndSARS protest”, the group in a statement, Friday, in Abuja, insisted that Sowore, has breached the conditions of the bail granted him following his #RevolutionNow”and must be immediately arrested and also have his bail revoked.
The statement made available to our kaduna correspondent was reportedly signed by Dr Orji Nwakocha for South East; Dr Aremu Babatunde for South West; Comrade Frank Jaja representing South South and Alhaji Ibrahim Dan Iya for North West. Others are Sheik Mohammed Adamu for North East; Mr Dakwohi Samson for FCT; and Comrade Peter Yohana for North Central, respectively.
The Genuine #EndSARS Protesters said the renewed protest being spearheaded by Mr. Sowore was not known to them, saying they had since backed down from their protests and were already meeting with governments at all levels on roundtable.
The group appealed to parents to advised their wards against allowing themselves to be misled by Mr Sowore, who, it accused of attempting to hijack the #EndSARS platform to deliberately blackmail President Muhammadu Buhari and his government.
According to the Genuine #EndSARS Protesters, the clandestine motive of Mr Sowore is to feather his own nest, noting with concern, the insistence of Mr Sowore to go on protest when all those that started the #EndSARS protests had not only backed down but also in meeting with governments towards resolving issues that informed the action.
The group therefore tasked security agencies to see Sowore as a threat to national security and immediately treat him as one.
“The Genuine #EndSARS Protesters, being the body of the real people that protested recently against the police Special Anti-Robbery Squad, SARS’ excessive powers and brutality, have been watching with concern the attempt by one Mr Omoyele Sowore to hijack our platform to further his inordinate ambition.
