Human rights activist, Omoyele Sowore, has broken silence on his arrest by the Department of State Services, DSS, over the Revolution Now protests.
Sowore expressed gratitude to Nigerians and the international community for their support, urging them to pour out to the streets in protest against bad governance in the country.
Sowore speaking for the first time after his arrest on Saturday said this during the visit of the “Take It Back Movement” to the DSS facility where he is being held, The Nation reports.
Sowore said “I would like to assure everyone that I am being treated well and in very good health.
“I am pleased that the peaceful #RevolutionNow protests went ahead.
“However, knowledge of the sheer number of innocent Nigerians being arrested for exercising their civil rights bothers me.
“I join others in demanding for the immediate and unconditional release of all those arrested by the police on Monday.”
