Office of the Nigerian Citizen started this petition to Nigerian Presidency and

Omoyele Sowore was re-arrested by the Nigerian Secret Police right inside the premises of a federal high court in Nigeria on Friday, 6th December, 2019, only a few hours after he was released from their custody the day before. His release came after series of court orders which which were blatantly flouted by the secret service.
The refusal of the DSS to obey court orders in a high profile case as Sowore’s, signals that ordinary Nigerians are unsafe as their rights can be trampled upon by the presidency and it’s departments without any repercussion whatsoever.

Also the action of the DSS, marching right into the court premises with their guns to re-arrest a citizen who has been granted bail is an attempt to instigate fear and intimidate Judges in Nigeria. This will hamper their independence and affect their ability to deliver fair judgements for the Nigerian populace especially in cases that involve the presidency.


we hereby write this prayer to the allies of Nigeria to call the presidency and the DSS to order and urge them to obey the court order to release Omoyele Sowore on bail as it is his right. We also urge our allies to remind the presidency that their actions through the DSS in Sowore’s case are deepening the already deep cracks in our democracy and represents a total disregard for the rule of law that put them in office and holds the Nation one. 
Sowore must be Free!!!
