Revolution Now: Nnamdi Kanu Hails Sowore

The Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra
(IPOB), Mazi Nnamdi Kanu has described the call
for a revolution in Nigeria by activist, Omoyele
Sowore is the highest form of bravery.
Kanu went on to say that the arrest of Sowore by
the DSS and consequent actions carried out by
security agencies to stop the RevolutionNow
protest on Monday is an affront to decency,
justice and fair play, adding that he did nothing
The IPOB leader who was reacting to the whole
issue surrounding the RevolutionNow protest
berated the President Mohammadu Buhari
administration for describing the protest as Illegal
stressing that he (Buhari) and his supporters did
make similar call in 2014 for revolution and
nobody got them arrested.
It will be recalled that 5 years ago, the APC led
by its then presidential aspirant and
Gen.Muhammadu Buhari; APC National Chairman,
John Odigie-Oyegun and Rivers State Governor,
Chibuike Amaechi, led thousands of party
supporters in a protest rally in Abuja, accusing
the PDP-led Federal Government of playing
politics with Boko Haram.
The protest tagged ‘Salvation Rally’, was said to
have aimed at drawing global attention to what
the then opposition party(APC), described as
deliberate hijack of the Nigeria police and other
security agencies by the ruling PDP.
As reported by Vanguard Newspaper 5 years ago,
the APC leaders said, the rally was essentially a
clarion call against the increased spate of
insecurity, killings, corruption, and police brutality
against official opposition.
They also accused President Goodluck Jonathan
and the PDP of gross incompetence and
unprecedented display of impunity.
Reacting to all these, Kanu said it is laughable
that the same set of persons who in 2014 called
for a revolution and organized a nationwide street
protest against the democratically elected
government of Goodluck Jonathan now see
similar move as a treasonable offence under their
own regime.
According to him, "This same set of people now in
Aso Rock and their media friends that came out
on the street to march, protest and call for
revolution against President Jonathan in 2014, are
today the same bunch of despicable reprobates
against any form of lawful dissent, protest or
revolution against their regime.
"This is not only laughable, but an affront to
decency, justice and fair play. Apparently, the
occupants of Aso Rock are telling the world they
can call for a revolution and street protest against
a sitting president i.e. Jonathan, but nobody is
allowed to protest against them.
"Pathetically some of these poorly educated
fellows from their 'presidency' come on their
national television to shamelessly provide a flimsy
defence of what is clearly indefensible.
"The same thing late Buhari did in 2014 by openly
calling for a revolution and organising nationwide
street protests with the likes of Bola Ahmed
Tinubu against the democratically elected
government of Goodluck Jonathan is now a
treasonable offence under their rule.
"Even going by the cringe-worthy standards of
the most hopelessly backward Banana republic on
this earth, the detention of Sowore for doing
exactly what late Buhari did is a new low for the
"Why didn't Buhari, Abba Kyari, El-Rufai, Tinubu
et al wait for the election of 2015 to remove
Jonathan before embarking on their 2014
Revolution as they are now sanctimoniously
"Why did they take to the streets in protest, an
action they themselves openly tagged a
revolution, before an election?
"The only language this Abba Kyari led Fulani
Jihadi cabal in Aso Rock understand is consistent
mass action and civil disobedience. IPOB has
done and is still doing it and so too the Shiite.
"What the Yoruba nation and every conscientious
person must do now is to rally round Omoleye
Sowore to ensure his release or else he will be
another Sambo Dasuki detained indefinitely with
no constituency to mount pressure on his behalf
as IPOB did in my case and Shiite (INM) for
Sheikh El-Zakzaki."
Kanu said that the RevolutionNow is a laudable
initiative and must be commended by all lovers of
"What Sowore did in calling for a revolution in
Nigeria is the highest form of bravery. Protests
should continue and if need be intensified,
especially in Yorubaland, until Omoleye Sowore is
set free."
