“My mind is disturbed … please release my son”- Sowore’s Mother Pleads with Buhari to Release him



The distraught mother of political activist, Omoyele Sowore, has made an emotional plea to President Muhammadu Buhari, to order the release of her son from the custody of the Department of State Service (DSS).

Sowore, who remains in DSS custody, has been granted bail by the Federal High Court.

Speaking in a video addressed to President Buhari, Sowore’s mother pleaded and called on all mothers to join her in speaking out against the continous detention of her son.

She said:

Dear SSS, Dear Buhari, I am Yele Sowore’s mother. I am sending you this message as a mother. I am a woman, your mother is a woman, your wife is a woman also. This is December and Yele has been taken away since August.

He always comes to me in the village every December but you have been holding him. I am a widow, my son has always been like that. He speaks against injustice and stands up against it. He doesn’t run away, he faces his case. Please release him and let him face his case in court. I know him, he can’t run away because he knows he has not committed any crime.

You are a Muslim, please in the name of Allah, leave my son, release him. I call on all mothers to speak out, let us join voice for the sake of the future of our children.

Omoyele is only asking for a better Nigeria so that all our children can have a good future. My mind is disturbed that he has not been allowed to go for medical care since August. Alhaji Bichi Yusuf, please obey the law since you have gone to court release Omoyele Sowore now.

Since I gave birth to him, he always speaks against evil. Even in the village, before he went to school in Lagos, he has always been like that. He is not a criminal, release Sowore now. Please release my son because you have your own son, you take care of your son, let me take care of my children.

I am a widow, release my son. I cannot eat, I cannot sleep and it is affecting my health. Please release Omoyele Sowore, my son. He is not a criminal. Omoyele is not a criminal, leave him.

    Sowore will have his chance to make a case of illegal detention and be compensated.

    but DSS should focus on associations of lawyers and associations of accountants. theses are the people that have almost ruined our country, Sowore is just a by-product of that.

    It was his lack of understanding of Nigeria’s problem that resulted in his approach. Nigeria’s problem is systematic rent-seeking institutionalized by Lawyers and Accountants, of which most civil servants became complicit because they were basically living in a bubble that protects them from the problem.

    I hope one day all the Lawyers and Accountants involved will be brought to justice for the scale of damage they have done to this country.
