The arrested convener of #RevolutionNow protests, Omoyele Sowore has denied claims of being in contact with “foreign collaborators” in Dubai, the United Arab Emirates, and other countries to destabilize President Buhari’s government.
Sowore who also denied visiting Dubai or any UAE cities, further dispelled DSS’ allegation of receiving “millions of dollars” from the alleged collaborators to sponsor widespread attacks in Nigeria.
Maintaining that he only mobilised Nigerians “to address the crises of corruption, maladministration, mismanagement of the economy and insecurity”, Sowore also disclosed that he willingly provided his local and foreign banks’ account details to the DSS.
Punch reported that the #RevolutionNow Protests convener countered DSS’ allegation in a “further affidavit” filed on Tuesday, August 27, before the Federal High Court in Abuja in support of his motion challenging the order for his detention which the court issued at the instance of the DSS on August 8, 2019.
One of his lawyers from Femi Falana’s law firm, Mr Marshall Abubakar told newsmen that Sowore only “mobilised the Nigerian people including students and youths, workers, market women and other oppressed people to influence the Federal government, the 36 state governments and 774 local governments to address the crises of corruption, and insecurity” as he filed the ‘further affidavit’ in court.
