Shehu Sani, Senator who represented Kaduna Central in the Senate during 8th National Assembly, has called on the federal government to release Omoyele Sowore, a dissent mind.

The former senator said this on Saturday following the arrest of Sowore, the presidential candidate of the African Action Congress (AAC) in the 2019 elections.

Sowore was whisked away in the early hours of Saturday by operatives of the Department of State Services (DSS).

“The arrest of Omoyele Sowore stands unreservedly condemned,” he said.

“Our Democracy has become a block of ice floating on warm waters. We are leapfrogging into totalitarianism.

“A nation that can sit and have a cup of coffee with bandits in the search for peace should not find it difficult to engage dissenting voices.

“It’s ironic for our nation to walk in the sun and be allergic to shadows. The voices of dissent are the heartbeats of democracy.

“Let not our prisons not be filled with those that speak but with those that kill.”

Sowore’s arrest and detention may not be unconnected with #RevolutionNow, a movement planning to protest “against bad governance” in the country, scheduled to begin on Monday, August 5.

Sani said the political class must not be intolerant to the “moral chariots that validated their ascension to power”.

He said, “learn to tolerate things that are legal within the ambit of the law but unpleasant to our ears”.

“The Government should defeat Sowore by beaming a bigger light than his and not by switching off his rays.

“Sowore should be released.”
