Nigerian singer, Banky W, has reacted to the decision of the Federal High Court in Abuja which has directed that former Presidential candidate Omoyele Sowore be released on bail.
The Sahara Reporters owner was incarcerated on the 2nd of August and had been in detention since.
The Federal Government then decided to bring new charges against him which drew heavy criticism from many Nigerians who were dismayed by the actions of the government.
Now that he is to be released on bail, singer/politician, Bankole Wellington, or Banky W as we all know him, posted a series of tweets where he condemned the current government, accusing them of always going after innocent people.
“I’m so thankful that our justice system made the right call by granting the release of Omoyele Sowore. Nigeria has a way of punishing the innocent and trampling on the rights, dreams and hopes of the regular citizens.
“Every time our leaders do wrong and get away with it, we lose a little piece of our soul. We become numb, we lose hope, and we subconsciously accept that this is how things are and there’s nothing we can say or do to change it.
“You didn’t need to be a voter or volunteer for Mr Sowore to see that this was clearly an infringement on a basic human right and a grave injustice. Freedom of speech and the right to peacefully protest is the unassailable right of every Nigerian citizen.
“May God bless those in our justice system who stood on the right side of history by doing the right thing. “May God strengthen, comfort and bless Sowore, his wife and family as they have endured the most difficult of times while only being guilty of attempting to speak up for a better Nigeria.”
