If calling for a revolution is treasonable, at least 70% of Nigerians should be in jail. They have called for it at one point or the other, including those in government now when they were out of government! #FreeSowore ! https://t.co/zbIC2uUcba

No one deserves to be arrested for planning to stage a peaceful protest.
This kind of act is cruel and against human rights.
No matter how much you dislike Sowore, I won’t rate you if you support such show of shame by the DSS and whoever sent them. #FreeSowore

Security agencies that can’t protect lives and properties during the day but can easily creep into someone’s house in the middle of the night to stage a force arrest. #FreeSowore
