The organisers of the #RevolutionNow protest have said that the mass protest scheduled to hold on Monday will hold as planned despite the arrest and detention of its leader, Omoyele Sowore.

Sowore was arrested by Operatives of the Department of State Services in the wee hours of Saturday.

In a statement signed by Kunle Wizeman Ajayi, the group said the arrest of Sowore didn’t come as a surprise and accused the federal government of making efforts to dampen their struggle.

It said: “We have confirmed that Omoyele Sowore, the leader of the #RevolutionNow protests, has been arrested.

“This arrest is not surprising to us. We know that the president has tried everything in their powers to discredit and dampen our struggle.”

“For the past three days, the presidency has paid social media influencers hugely and such others to discredit the #RevolutionNow all to no avail!

“The presidency even went as far as attacking Amnesty International, believing that their blackmails would appeal to Nigerians.

“They also paid some ex-activists to counter us publicly but the mass of working people stood by #RevolutionNow!”
