The Presidency has confirmed that the 2019 Presidential candidate of the African Action Congress (AAC) Omoyele Sowore, was arrested by the operatives of the Department of State Services (DSS).
Recall we reported earlier that the DSS operatives stormed Sowore’s Lagos home in the early hours of Saturday August 3, in what many saw as an attempt to frustrate the scheduled August 5 protest.
Lauretta Onochie, President Muhammadu Buhari’s aide on Social Media matters while confirming the arrest said the DSS saved Omoyele Sowore from setting himself ablaze. Backing her claims with photos of a burning man, Lauretta tweeted;
This Is What DSS Saved Sowore from. (See image) With talks about setting himself ablaze, it’s in order for the security operatives, whose role it is to safeguard both lives and properties, to take him into custody to prevent him from harming himself and get him the help he needs.
