Sowore: We were given N1m not to protest – Adeyanju
Political activist, Deji Adeyanju has alleged that he was given the sum of N1million by some government sympathizers so he won’t stage a protest in demand of the release of Sahara Reporters publisher, Omoyele Sowore.
Sowore is still being held by the Department for State Security, DSS, despite his counsel, Femi Falana, SAN, stating that he has met his bail conditions.
Speaking at the venue of the ongoing protest in Abuja today, Deji Adeyanju said, “We were offered one million Naira at gunpoint with a promise for more for us not to hold this rally. Those who gave us this money know themselves, we also know those who gave us the money.
“We will not compromise, if those who gave us the money don’t come and collect it back today, we will give it to Femi Falana SAN to defray Sowore’s legal costs.”
