Human rights lawyer, Mike Ozekhome (SAN) has reacted to the arrest of Omoyele Sowore as he accused the Buhari-led government of not being tolerant to criticism.
Ozekhome stated this when he appeared as a guest on Channels Television’s Sunday Politics.
The Human rights lawyer and Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN) spoke on the arrest of Omoyele Sowore by operatives of the Department of State Services (DSS), and he wondered how ‘dancing on the street saying we don’t want bad governance can amount to treason’.
Mike Ozekhome pointed out that this current administration is allergic to criticisms.
“Dancing on the street saying we don’t want bad governance how does that amount to treason, unreasonable felony?
“This government is allergic to plurality of voices, this government is allergic to criticism; this government is allergic to opinions. This government should know that Nigeria is a country with many colours.
“You cannot sample opinions. We cannot all sleep on the same bed. This government should learn to be tolerant.”
