‘My Husband has never been to Dubai’ – Sowore’s Wife calls for His release

Opeyemi Sowore, wife of Omoyele Sowore, Nigerian politician and activist, has demanded an immediate release of her husband.

The Department of State Services (DSS) had arrested Sowore at his hotel in Lagos on August 3, two days to the #RevolutionNow protest convened by the activist and former presidential aspirant.

He was later transferred to Abuja while the secret police secured a court order to detain him for 45 days on charges of terrorism and plotting to overthrow the government of President Muhammadu Buhari.

The DSS also alleged that he held a series of meetings with some foreign collaborators outside Nigeria, including Dubai, where millions of dollars were given to him to sponsor a widespread attack on Nigeria with a view to violently remove Buhari.

But speaking when she featured on Democracy Now, a news programme in the US, Sowore’s wife said her husband has never been to Dubai.

She also narrated how her husband contacted her, via text message, shortly before he was picked up.

The woman said he had been in solitary confinement, adding that she and her children had spoken to him just twice since his arrest.
