Sowore: CSOs Give FG 14-day Ultimatum to Release All Illegally Detained Persons 889399c4 civil society 1 696x522 300x225

mass action inevitable if government fails to comply
Some Civil Society Organizations have given a 14-day ultimatum to the Federal Government to release Omoyele Sowore and other illegally detained persons or risk having a nationwide mass action.
The CSOs at a press conference on the state of the nation in Abuja also stated five demands that they needed the government to unfailingly comply with within 14 days.
Among the CSOs that gave the ultimatum were Amnesty International, Centre for Democracy and Development, Civil Society Legislative Advocacy Centre (CISLAC), Concerned Nigerians, SERAP, EiE, HEDA resource centre, People’s Alternative Front, TBN, Transition monitoring group (TMG), and WARDC.
Listing the demands of the groups, Yemi Adamolekun from EiE Nigeria said the
CSOs were concerned about the attack on the judiciary and attack on free speech and pattern of silencing.
She said, “We demand that President Muhammadu Buhari to show accountability as President and address the nation on his commitment to the rule of law and human rights. Secondly to release illegally detained persons by the department of secret service. Thirdly, government should obey all pending court orders, and lastly an investigation of officers who violated protocol and circumstances leading to Omoyele Sowore second arrest and his unconditional release.”
She warns that if the demands were not honoured by the government within 14 days, they will mobilise a mass action across Nigeria.
Corroborating Ademolekun statement,
CISLAC executive director, Auwal Rafsanjani, lamented that the country was under siege.
He stated that the mass action was collective responsibility of every citizen because everyone was in danger.
Rafsanjani accused the present government of perpetuating the same brutality they bemoaned back in 2015.
According to him, “In 2015, when DSS went and raided APC data centre they were crying. Lai Mohammed shouted that this is the worst thng that had ever happened in the history of Nigeria but today they are justifying this gross, violent violation of fundamental human rights in Nigeria.”
“We want to let the country and the whole world know that we are in a state of siege, what we are experiencing is worse than military dictatorship because during the military regime courts were not invaded to carry out illegal attack. Instead of them to apologize to the nation they were rather justifying the shameless act. We have a moral obligation as citizens to sanitize governance in this country, we must checkmate excesses of public officials.”
On his part, political activist, Deji Adeyanju stressed that mass action was inevitable with the pattern of this current government desecrating the courts.
He said, “Even Abacha obeyed court orders, every dictator in this country obeyed court orders. As a movement and as a people we must stop beating round the bush, President Buhari has not hidden his intentions from day one, he said that national security is second to rule of law and he has demonstrated it. When he disobeyed court order of El zakzaky we all kept quiet, he did it to Dasuki we kept quiet, now he’s doing it to Sowore. DSS never had any plan to release Sowore, they were compelled to release Sowore because Justice Ojukwu was courageous enough to give them 24 hours to comply. Whether we like it or not mass action is inevitable if government refuses to comply with the demands. The ultimatum starts today, they should release Sowore and others.”

Presidency Denies Sack of Osinbajo’s Aides
After keeping mum for several hours, the presidency last night dismissed as untrue, the list, circulating in the media, containing the names of 35 aides of Vice President Yemi Osinbajo purportedly sacked on Tuesday night.
In a tweet last night, Senior Special Assistant to the Vice President, Mr. Laolu Akande, said the list was false.
“A list circulating in the media on the so-called sacked presidential aides is not genuine and ought to be ignored,” he tweeted.
There had been unconfirmed reports of the sack of some aides of the vice president Thursday.
The president, who is currently on a two-week private visit to London, had allegedly ordered the sack without any official statement.
The names of the allegedly sacked aides and their designations circulating Thursday are: AJibola Ajayi, Special Adviser, Legal Affairs; Lanre Osinbona, Senior Special Assistant, Information Communication Technology (ICT); Imeh Okon, Senior Special Assistant on Infrastructure; Jide Awolowo, Special Assistant, Oil and Gas; Lilian Idiaghe, Special Assistant, Research, Legal and Compliance; Arukino Umukoro, Special Adviser, Niger Delta; Bala Liman Mohammed, Senior Special Assistant, Economy and Edobor Iyamu, Senior Special Assistant on Niger Delta.
Others were Dolapo Bright, Senior Special Assistant, Agro Allied Value Chain; Toyosi Onaolapo, Special Assistant, Community Engagement; Gambo Manzo, Special Assistant, Political; Bisi Ogungbemi, Special Assistant, Political Matters; Edirin Akemu, Senior Special Assistant on Industry, Trade & Investment; Akin Soetan, Senior Technical Assistant on Economic matters; Aondaver Kuttuh, Technical Assistant, Rule of Law; Ife Adebayo, Special Assistant, Innovation and Yussuf Ali, Special Assistant, Power Regulations.
Also reportedly sacked were Tola Asekun, Senior Special Assistant on National Boundary Commission; Morakinyo Beckley, Special Assistant on Off-grid Power; Yosola Akinbi, Senior Special Assistant on National Economic Council (NEC); Tochi Nwachukwu, Special Assistant on Power Privatisation; Bode Gbore, Senior Special Assistant, Political; Abdulrahman Baffa Yola, Special Assistant, Political; Kolade Sofola, Special Assistant, Infrastructure; Ebi Awosika, Senior Special Assistant, Community Engagement; Muyiwa Abiodun, Senior Special Assistant, Power; Forri Samson Banu, Special Assistant, Entrepreneurship; Bege Bala, Special Assistant Bureau of Public Enterprises (BPE); Feyishayo Aina, Special Assistant, Community Engagement; Halima Bawa, Special Assistant, Community Engagement; Nkechi Chukwueke, Special Assistant, Community Engagement and Ilsa Essien, Special Assistant, Media.
But Akande said Thursday the list was untrue and should be ignored.
He also reacted to the attack on Vanguard’s photojournalist in the Presidential Villa, Mr. Abayomi Adesida, by the security aides of the vice president, saying issues bordering on the attack had been resolved.
Akande, who said he had apologised to Adesida for the embarrassment caused him by the incident, added that the action of the security aides was regretted.
“The needless scuffle between a villa accredited photographer, Mr. Abayomi Adesida, and one of our security aides earlier today has since been resolved.
“Incident is regretted and I have apologised to him for any embarrassment caused,” Akande tweeted.
