Mother of the Publisher of Sahara Reporters, Omoyele Sowore has reached out to President Muhammadu Buhari to release his son, while stressing that he [Sowore] is not a criminal.
Sowore’s mother (Esther), in a video interview with Objectv Media, an online TV, said her health has been compromised with the continued detention of her son.
He words, “Dear Buhari, I am sending you this message as a woman, your mother is a woman, your wife is a woman, this is December and Yele has been taken away since August, he always comes to the Village every December to greet me in December; but you have been holding him. Please release him and let him face his case in court. He can’t run away, because he knows he has not committed a crime…My mind is disturbed that he has not been allowed to go for medical care since August since I gave birth to him, he always speaks against evil… he is not a criminal, release my son, you take care of your own son.”
Recall Mr Sowore was arrested on August 3 for leading #RevolutionNow campaign — a series of nationwide protests he had planned with other activists to demand a better Nigeria.
