Ace Nigerian singer, David Adeleke aka Davido and fellow singer Simi have condemned the re-arrest of Omoyele Sowore, convener of ‘Revolution Now’ protest.

According to Sahara reporters, the Department of State Services (DSS) forcefully took the activist to its headquarters in Abuja after the agency tried to rearrest him in court on Friday.

However, reports have alleged that, during the ongoing trial of Sowore and Olawale Bakare on Friday, the DSS disrupted it, trying to re-arrest them.

It claimed that the operatives of the DSS chased away the presiding judge, Justice Ijeoma Ojukwu and brutalised a reporter with a renowned television station.

Sowore was released by the DSS on Thursday evening after the Federal High Court, Abuja, ordered his release within 24 hours, about four months after he was arrested.

Recall that he was arrested for organising the Revolution Now protest, which the DSS referred to as a treasonable offence.

In his reaction, Davido tweeted;

“Justice slowly becoming a thing of the past n our dear country …. a kid somewhere in nigeria dreaming of becoming a lawyer and bettering the community would see this and start having doubts … just sad”.

Meanwhile, Simi also said that the news was sad. Both artistes were called out by followers who felt they should be doing more to help rather than just tweet.

They had reacted saying that it wasn’t solely up to celebrities to fight for justice in the society and everyone was equally responsible.
