Nigerians in South Africa demand release of Sowore, others


Some Nigerian residing in South Africa on Wednesday protested the arrest of a former presidential candidate in the 2019 elections, Omoyele Sowore and other members of the Revolution Now protest who were arrested by State Security Service.

The protesters under the auspices of ‘Take It Back’ took to the nation’s High Commission in Pretoria, South Africa’s capital demanding among other things, a better governed Nigeria, better security, safety for Nigerians in the diaspora.

The aggrieved protesters who were initially received by a senior official in the embassy insisted on seeing the Nigerian High Commissioner to South Africa, Ambassador Kabir Bala.

According to the group’s Coordinator, Doris Ikeri-Solarin, members are not happy with happenings in the country, urging the envoy to relay the message to the Federal Government.
