Sowore arrested in Abuja court, allegedly detained in SARS 'abattoir’

Activist and founder of #RevolutionNow Movement, Omoyele Sowore, was allegedly arrested by security operatives in Abuja on Thursday.

His arrest was confirmed in a statement released by the National Publicity Secretary of African Action Congress, Femi Adeyeye.

Recall that Sowore ran as a presidential candidate on the AAC platform during the 2019 election.

Adeyeye disclosed that Sowore was apprehended by the police “just after stepping out of the Court where the Chairman, party leaders and members had converged to witness the party’s case against Independent National Electoral Commission and usurpers.”

The statement further added that Sowore was whisked away to the former Special Anti Robbery Squad, infamously called “Abattoir”, noting that the officers did not give any reason for his arrest.

“As at the time of releasing this statement that he is currently at the dreaded SARS unit called ‘Abattoir’ and men from that station were the ones who carried out the arrest.

“We are monitoring these events and we can assure all members that these recurring illegalities and attacks won’t be allowed to stand. Specific reason(s) for his arrest remain sketchy at this time.”
