Former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar, has been accused by the All Progressives Congress (APC) to be the patron and cheerleader behind Omoyele Sowore’s RevolutionNow, a movement against Buhari’s administration.
The APC in a statement signed by its national publicity secretary, Mallam Lanre Isa-Onilu, said Atiku, who was also the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in the country’s last Presidential elections, as a sore leader and “the patron and cheerleader of the unpatriotic elements who would rather bring our country down for being rejected at the polls.”
The party stated that the detention of Sowore was legitimate since it was procured through a court process and urged Nigerians to disregard what it called the skewed narratives and sentiments being propagated by certain individuals.
Just yesterday, the Federal High Court in Abuja granted the Department of State Services (DSS) last week, permission to detain Sowore for 45 days having been fingered as the mastermind of the planned protest.
Recall that Omoyele Sowore, publisher of Sahara Reporters and presidential candidate of African Action Congress (AAC), in the last general elections, and the public face of the RevolutionNow was detained by DSS earlier on Saturday.
