Omoyele Sowore, human rights activist and pro-democracy campaigner, says whether or not President Muhammadu Buhari and his political acolytes like it, “the revolution” will take place in Nigeria to bring about good governance and respect for the rule of law.
Sowore, who described his detention experience, said he was kept out of contact with the true globe despite battling for people’s freedoms.
He said, “I wasn’t in touch with my lawyers. I don’t know the charges they bring against me. I can’t see sunshine. Except today, I wasn’t outside. Sowore added, “I have no doubt that this will come to an end in favor of the Nigerian people.
“The revolution will occur whether you like it or not. It’s just a question of time.” Sowore said his shoulder was wounded on August 3 by the DSS operatives who kidnapped him in Lagos.
“I’ve got a bad shoulder they broke during my arrest.” They didn’t give me phone access. No television, no newspapers. Nothing.
“What is interesting is that Boko Haram commanders who are engaged in high level terrorism have access to telephone, TV and even cable in their cells. So you wonder which one is better: a freedom fighter or a terrorist.”
