Atiku Abubakar Reacts To Omoyele Sowore's Rearrest, Calls it Unfortunate Drama

Atiku Abubakar, former Vice President of Nigeria and the Presidential aspirant of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the 2019 election described the rearrest of Pro-Democracy activist, Omoyele Sowore as an "unfortunate drama".

Today, December 6, 2019, the Department of States Services (DSS) stormed the Federal High court in Abuja and rearrested Sowore a few hours after he was freed from the custody of the service. He is currently back to the detention he has been since August.

In his reaction,  Atiku reminded the DSS that the power belongs to the people not to the barrel of the gun.

He urged Nigerians and the good wishers of the country to speak against what he described as "tyranny".

Here is his statement: "Today, I am in extreme anguish of spirit having watched the unfortunate drama that played itself out at the Federal High Court sitting in Abuja, in which agents of the state caused a commotion in court in order to frustrate a judgment of a court of competent authority.

"Without the rule of law, there can be no rule at all. Power in Nigeria still flows from the people, not from the barrel of a gun. I call on all men and women of goodwill not to keep quiet or sit on the fence at times like this.

"To keep Nigeria a democracy the paramount duty of all concerned stakeholders. Please speak up against this tyranny and side with the Nigerian people."
