The Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project (SERAP) has given the Federal Government of Nigeria 48 hours to release the convener of #RevolutionNow, Omoyele Sowore and others, or it would take legal actions against it.
SERAP made the threat via its verified Twitter account on New year day. The tweet says, “Nigerian authorities must immediately and unconditionally release Omoyele Sowore & other activists reportedly arrested and tortured during a peaceful protest last night in Abuja.”
Also, many Nigerians on social media have called for Sowore’s release with hashtag #Freesowore as his whereabouts remain unknown. The police have yet to issue any statement on his arrest.
