Veteran Nigerian rapper, Eedris Abdulkareem has said that the arrest of presidential candidate of the African Action Congress (AAC) Omoyele Sowore by operatives of the Department of State Services, DSS is “outrightly cowardly and defeatist”
Recall that Okpadi earlier reported Sowore’s arrest in the early hours of Saturday.
In his Reaction Eedris Abdulkareem, posted on his Instagram page saying, “The news of the ignoble arrest of the Revolution Now project convener Mr Femi Sowore is to say the least very regrettable and equally ludicrous.
Arresting Mr. Sowore and trying to intimidate the citizenry is outrightly cowardly and defeatist. Nigerians are truly tired of the staus quo and desire, or rather demand a true change. And no amount of intimidation or harassment is ever going to change this.”
He went on to say, “#Revolutionnow is for every Nigerian, irrespective of class, creed or tongue… Indeed and truly, the future of our land is in our hands.
It is therefore very imperative to mention at this juncture that the arrest of Sowore, rather than throwing us in disarray as they envisaged, have succeeded in energizing and propelling our collective zeal the more. Forward we March on the 5th of August. There’s no going back.”
