Omoyele Sowore in court

The Department of State Service has finally spoken up on the continued detention of the convener of the #RevolutionNow protests, Mr. Omoyele Sowore.

Addressing a news conference in Abuja on Tuesday, the spokesman for the Service, Mr. Peter Afunanya, insisted that the appropriate persons have not come for his release.

He claimed that personnel of the service were being threatened and despite that, the DSS has continued to hold the rights of citizens in high standard.

The DSS spokesman explained that those who came for Sowore’s release were protesters and administrative procedures must be followed for him to be released.

He stressed that only the persons who stood as sureties for Sowore can secure his release from the DSS custody.

Sowore has remained in the custody of the Service, weeks after a Federal High Court in Abuja granted him bail along with his co-defendant, Mr. Olawale Bakare, with some conditions.

Tanker in Onitsha

Another tanker has fallen at Tarzan area, along Owerri/Onitsha expressway, in Onitsha, Anambra State on Tuesday.

The tanker was loaded with kerosene reports and it would be the tenth tanker to fall around Anambra State, within a space of two months.

In October, two tankers ladened with petroleum products fell in Onitsha, causing loss of lives, wares belonging to traders, houses and cars parked in automobile mechanic workshops.

Tuesday’s incident happened at about 10 am, which showed that the driver defied a previous order given by the state government which banned tankers from carrying petroleum products in the state at day.

The state police command’s public relations officer, SP Haruna Mohammed confirmed the incident, saying that men from the command were on ground to forestall any outbreak of fire.

Governor Willie Obiano, while placing a ban on the movement of Petrol laden tankers a month ago had called on security agencies, including the police to strictly enforce the ban.

Newly elected Kogi state governor, Yahaya Bello, on Tuesday, rubbished claims that he was owing salaries, stressing that such were “lies.”

Bello said his administration met salary backlog owed workers in the state, but insisted that his administration was not owing workers.

The governor-elect, who said this while featuring on Channels Television, also alleged that thugs of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, stabbed a resident after he was declared the winner of Saturday’s election.

Bello also alleged that the wife of his deputy was also shot after he emerged winner of the election.

He said:

“All these reports of me owing salaries are lies. Past governors of Kogi State were owning salaries starting from Audu to my immediate predecessor. Kogi state is not owning any dime at the state level, what is left is the ten percent from the previous government.

“As for El-Rufai kneeling, he was begging that Kogi people should forgive Bello for ensuring security and ensuring the state was peaceful and not because he could not pay salaries.”

Taraba Governor Darius Ishaku

The Court of Appeal has affirmed Mr Darius Ishaku of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), as the duly elected Governor of Taraba state.

A five-man panel of the court that sat in Abuja led by Justice Chidi Uwa held that the current Taraba governor was duly elected.

The court held that the All Progressive Congress (APC) had no candidate in the March 9, 2019 governorship election in Taraba state, by virtue of the disqualification of Mr Abubakar Danladi, by a Federal High Court in Jalingo on the 6th of March 2019.

 

The Taraba State Governorship Election Petition Tribunal had on the 20th of September 2019, delivered a judgment that Mr Danladi was not qualified to contest the 2019 election.

The appellants failed to prove their claims that the election was marred by irregularities and failure to comply with the electoral act. It dismissed the appeal for lacking merit.

Published

Archbishop of Canterbury

The Archbishop of Canterbury, Most Revd Justin Portal Welby has responded to an open letter by Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project, (SERAP) concerning the continued detention of Omoyele Sowore and Olawale Bakare

SERAP had urged him to use his good offices and friendship with President Muhammadu Buhari to prevail on him to obey court orders most recently involving activists who had remained in arbitrary detention despite a court order for their release.

This development was disclosed in a statement on Tuesday by SERAP deputy director Kolawole Oluwadare.

Responding on behalf of the Archbishop of Canterbury through an email last night, Dominic Goodall, the Chief Correspondence Officer at the Lambeth Palace, said:

Goodall’s email read in part:

“Thank you for taking the time to share your comments and concerns on this matter, which have been noted. Please be assured that I will communicate your concerns to the Archbishop and his staff team so that they are aware of your concerns. Thank you again for taking the time to write.

“We are very delighted that our letter and the concerns that it raises have caught the attention of the Archbishop. Given his public record for justice and human rights, we have absolutely no doubt that he will prevail on President Buhari to obey not just the court order for the release of Sowore and Bakare but all court orders.

“But it should never have reached this level, as the government ought to have obeyed court orders as a matter of routine”
