Popular Nigerian rapper, Eedris Abdulkareem has liken the arrest of Presidential candidate of the African Action Congress (APC), Mr. Omoyele Sowore by operatives of the Department of State Services (DSS), which he described as ‘outrightly cowardly and defeatist.
Sowore’s last tweet at exactly 1:25 am, reads, “DSS invades Sowore’s.”
Few minutes later he added another tweet which could be a confirmation that his phone must have been seized while trying to raise the alarm about his arrest, earlier.
According to Eedris, “the news of the ignoble arrest of the Revolution Now project convener Mr Femi Sowore is to say the least very regrettable and equally ludicrous’.
“Arresting Mr. Sowore and trying to intimade the citizenry is outrightly cowardly and defeatist. Nigerians are truly tired of the staus quo and desire, or rather demand a true Change. And no amount of intimidation or harassment is ever going to change this.
“Revolution now is for every Nigerian, irrespective of class, creed or tongue… Indeed and truly, the future of our land is in our hands.
“It is therefore very imperative to mention at this junction that the arrest of Femi Sowore rather than throwing us in disarray as they envisaged, have rather succeeded in energizing and propelling our collective zeal the more. Forward we March on the 15th of August. There’s no going back.” he also said.
