The Igbo apex socio-cultural group, Ohaneze Ndigbo, has called for the release of publisher of SaharaReporters Omoyele Sowore, arrested and detained by the Department of State Services last Saturday.

Sowore is the main organiser of the #RevolutionNow protest which was scheduled to hold on August 5 nationwide.

The national leader of the youth wing of Ndigbo of the group, Arthur Obiorah, in a statement on Thursday said there was no way the intention of the protest was to disrupt government agenda.

The statement read, “We refute the claims that the group’s intention was to upset the government’s agenda.

“The authorities should read between the lines and decode the true messages behind the nationwide agitations.

“We request an unconditional release of the Presidential candidate of the Africa Action Congress, Omoyele Sowore, whose detention by the DSS falls below international standard which allows freedom of association, expression and assemblage of individuals.

“Our country is in dire need of national conference where most of the questions itemised by Sowore are considered for implementation.

“The clamour for #RevolutionNow by Nigerians should be well thought about.
“It is an avenue where Nigerians pour out their minds on the state of the nation and what they feel is not right within the context of the universal coverage.”
