Ayoade Adebiyi started this petition to President of the United States and

Nigeria's government is becoming increasingly intolerant of dissent and criticism. A government that has failed to arrest the slide into worsening insecurity, ballooning poverty and pervasive hopelessness now excels in clamping down on people who have done no wrong but exercise their constitutional rights to free assembly and speech. The government headed by Muhammadu Buhari routinely flouts court orders for the release of dissidents and is violating human rights on a large scale like previous governments. Omoyele Sowore, a well known Nigerian activist was recently arrested by Nigeria's federal government because of his protests planned for August 5 which the security forces brutally crushed. International organizations and Western governments with influence on the Nigerian government are hereby called upon to please make representations for the release of all dissidents illegally held by Nigerian authorities.
