Atiku Frowns At DSS Re-arrest Of Sowore

Published

Re-arrest

 

Erstwhile Vice President of Nigeria, Atiku Abubakar, has frowned at the manner with which the DSS re-arrested Omoyele Sowore, publisher of Sahara Reporters.

Sowore was re-arrested on Friday having been released from a DSS detention facility hours earlier.

Reacting to the arrest of the convener of the Revolution Now Protest, Atiku said that he was angered in his spirit as he watched the commotion that unfolded when the DSS attempted to re-arrest Sowore and Bakare in the courtroom.

In a statement, Atiku described the treatment of the presiding judge, Justice Ojukwu as a “rape on the sanctity of the court,” calling on Nigerians not to keep mute until justice is achieved.

“Today, I am in extreme anguish of spirit having watched the unfortunate drama that played itself out at the Federal High Court sitting in Abuja, in which agents of the state caused a commotion in court in order to frustrate a judgment of a court of competent authority.

“Never in the history of Nigerian democracy has a judge been treated in such a disdainful and brazen attack on not just her person and office, but on the entire judiciary. This is unacceptable. It is a rape on the sanctity of the court.

“Nigeria is not a dictatorship. We are a democracy, no matter how inconvenient this fact is to the powers that have forced themselves on us.

“I call for an immediate inquiry to be set up to identify those responsible for the maltreatment meted out to Justice Ijeoma Ojukwu and the desecration of her court, and indeed the Nigerian judiciary. They must be sanctioned to the highest extent permissible by our laws.

“I further call for all law enforcement agencies in Nigeria to immediately respect not just the court order made by Justice Ojukwu, but the order of any court in Nigeria, on any detainee, be it Omoyele Sowore, Sambo Dasuki or Ibrahim Zakzaky, among others.

“We cannot have a situation where our government is quick to obey foreign court orders and even quicker to disobey domestic court orders. This is symptomatic of a mindset that is servile to foreign powers and brutal to Nigerians.

“Without the rule of law, there can be no rule at all. Power in Nigeria still flows from the people, not from the barrel of a gun. I call on all men and women of goodwill not to keep quiet or sit on the fence at times like this.

“To keep Nigeria democracy is the paramount duty of all concerned stakeholders. Please speak up against this tyranny and side with the Nigerian people,” Atiku wrote.
