Release Sowore Now. Human Rights Group Calls For Sowore's Release

The Delta State chapter of the Committee for the Defence of HumanRights (CDHR), has carpeted President Muhammadu Buhari over what it called bad governance and disobedience to court orders.

Speaking at a rally to mark the 59th independence of Nigeria in Warri, the state chairman of CDHR, Prince Taiga called on Buhari to immediately release pro-democracy and human rights activist, Sowore Omoyele. Taiga said, "We have bad roads, failure in power supply, no goodwater, no good hospitals, and corruption has taken over the entirepolitical system. Our people must resist all form of intimidation andharassment by governments at all levels and peacefully entrench abetter democratic system."

Speaking in the same vein, Israel Joe, Delta state secretary of (CDHR), called on President Buhari to immediately release human rights crusader, Omoyele Sowore, and respect the orders of the court. CDHR's secretary stressed the need for the people to resist bad governance and fight for justice which he said was the right position of their place of citizenship in Nigeria, adding that the group will use all peaceful and constitutional means to secure Sowore's release peacefully by occupying DSS's office, if they refused again to obey the order by the court.
