Nothing could be more daft! Of all the actions to take against a constitutionally and legally backed protest, the last should be an arrest of the convener. #FreeSowore

If news report of DSS picking up @YeleSowore is confirmed then those behind his arrest sure did not learn from the past, he just had you were he wants you to be. Now we won’t know if #RevolutionNow would have really taken over Nigerian government on Monday. It’s now #FreeSowore

Sowore arrested when his “Orange Revolution” courted ridicule following photographs of him defacing public property. With this, #RevolutionNow will morph into #FreeSowore, whip up public sympathy & prove that whoever ordered this arrest wasn’t so smart.http://therealmnews.com/revolutionnow-how-dss-manhandled-arrested-omoyele-sowore-like-common-criminal/

This cannot happen in Nigeria, Buhari is a military man, he will rather kill half of Nigerians to remain the president or prefer you people breaking @AsoRock doors to before he can resign,Moreover Oshiomole and APC won’t allow it 😭#RevolutionNow #FreeSowore #FreeDadiyata https://twitter.com/ayemojubar/status/1157399930144788482
