Falz slams FG over the continued detention of Sowore
Rapper Falz has reacted to the continued detention of Omoyele Sowore by saying that the government has shown a disregard for the rule of law and democracy.
Speaking on the Court ruling which ordered Sowore to be remanded, Falz wrote, ‘this government has shown a disgraceful level of disregard for democracy and the Rule of Law’.
He went on to say, ‘ the Court has ordered that Sowore be released but our government of the day has refused to obey the court. This man has been detained for over 50 days, obviously without any conviction. Despicable behaviour. Very very shameful’.
Falz is the son of human rights lawyer, Femi Falana SAN, who is the counsell to Sowore, the Sahara Reporters publisher.
Sowore was arrested on August 3rd by the Department for State Security, DSS, who have charged him with treasonable felony.
