Protest for Sowore’s release now or watch him rot in jail like Dasuki – Kanu
“What Sowore did in calling for a revolution in Nigeria is the highest form of bravery. Protests should continue and if need be intensified, especially in Yorubaland, until Omoleye Sowore is set free.” Kanu said.
“The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), has blasted President Mohammadu Buhari’s led administration or clamping down on #revolution no protesters after he (Buhari) enjoyed same privilege under former president, Goodluck Jonathan.
In a post in his official Facebook page, on 6 August 2019, the IPOB leader pointed out series of old pictures indicating members of All Progress Congress protest in against Goodluck Jonathan’s government with same revolutionary slogan and was never attacked by security agents.
Kanu argued why same set of people who enjoyed such privileges would come out with full force on #revolutionNow protesters, described them as “bunch of despicable reprobates” and wicked.
His post reads: “Below are your typical British created Nigerians, the worst set of people you could ever possibly encounter. Full of unbridled self-hate, stupendous ignorance, hypocrisy oozing from every pore in their decrepit body and filled with unimaginable wickedness.
“This same set of people now in Aso Rock and their media friends that came out on the street to march, protest and call for #Revolution against President Jonathan in 2014 are today the same bunch of despicable reprobates against any form of lawful dissent, protest or revolution against their regime. This is not only laughable but an affront to decency, justice and fair play. Apparently, the occupants of Aso Rock is telling the world they can call for a revolution and street protest against a sitting president i.e. Jonathan, but nobody is allowed to protest against them.
“Pathetically some of these poorly educated fellows from their ‘presidency’ come on their national television to shamelessly provide a flimsy defence of what is clearly indefensible. The same thing late Buhari did in 2014 by openly calling for a revolution and organising nationwide street protests with the likes of Bola Ahmed Tinubu against the democratically elected government of Goodluck Jonathan is now a treasonable offence under their rule. Even going by the cringe-worthy standards of the most hopelessly backward Banana republic on this earth, the detention of #Sowore for doing exactly what late Buhari did is a new low for the Zoo.
“Why didn’t Buhari, Abba Kyari, El-Rufai, Tinubu et al wait for the election of 2015 to remove Jonathan before embarking on their 2014 Revolution as they are now sanctimoniously preaching? Why did they take to the streets in protest, an action they themselves openly tagged a revolution, before an election?
“The only language this Abba Kyari led Fulani Jihadi cabal in Aso Rock understand is consistent mass action and civil disobedience. IPOB has done and is still doing it and so too the Shiite. What the Yoruba nation and every conscientious person must do now is to rally round Omoleye Sowore to ensure his release or else he will be another Sambo Dasuki detained indefinitely with no constituency to mount pressure on his behalf as IPOB did in my case and Shiite (INM) for Sheikh El-Zakzaki.
“#RevolutionNow is a laudable initiative and must be commended by all lovers of freedom. What Sowore did in calling for a revolution in Nigeria is the highest form of bravery. Protests should continue and if need be intensified, especially in Yorubaland, until Omoleye Sowore is set free.”
