Top Nigerian rapper, Falz has called out the government for arresting Omoyele Sowore, the convener of #RevolutionNow Protest.
According to the rapper, the government’s several years of neglect of the welfare of the people is the result of what is happening in the country right now.
He shared the photo of Sowore and wrote;
What we are facing is a build up of the several years of neglect of the welfare of our people. Our government’s constant disregard of the loss of lives of many Nigerians.
The ridiculous rate of poverty and unemployment that afflicts us. This is not a time to arrest anyone but to listen to the voices of the masses. Organizing a protest march does not in anyway amount to treason. #FreeSowore Immediately!
