The presidential candidate of the Allied Congress Party of Nigeria (ACPN) Dr. Oby Ezekwesili has Condemned the arraignment of Omoyele Sowore the Publisher of SaharaReporters by the Buhari led administration.
Earlier today, Sowore appeared in court on a suppose new count charges filed against him by the DSS being controlled by President Muhammadu Buhari, she added.
Ezekwesili took to her social media handle as she slammed the DSS for not obeying the rule of law.
In a statement released on media, she said;
Let me for the umpteenth time ask
@NGRPresident @MBuhari to make good the oath he swore to Uphold our Constitution.
Get the DSS which you directly supervise to #ObeyCourtOrder today and immediately #ReleaseSoworeNow.
Do not continue to detain a Citizen the Court granted Bail.
This new arraignment of @YeleSowore
before another judge is obviously meant to subvert the ruling by Justice Taiwo that he be released on Bail.
To see how he was roughly handled today in a video clip shows the FG of
@MBuhari has declared WAR on our Democracy.
It won’t win. Never.
How can happened to @YeleSowore in this clip be right conduct by @NGRPresident @MBuhari -supervised DSS?
Surely this @NigeriaGov has gotten carried away.
It is a dangerous inflection point for governments anywhere in the world. Visit History books.
All can now see that @NigeriaGov of
@NGRPresident @MBuhari is even on the eve of our 59th Independence Anniversary abandoning all pretenses that they respect our Constitution by this brazen subversion of the Judiciary and suppression of a Citizen’s Rights.
President @MBuhari do the right thing by our Constitution which you swore to defend.
Do not get carried away yet again.
Respect the Principle of Separation of Power.
Respect the Independence of our Judiciary.

The rash and harsh action of the secret police was to prevent the rights activist from speaking with journalists present in the courtroom.
