Opeyemi Sowore, wife of pro-democracy activist and convener of RevolutionNow movement, Omoyele Sowore, has hit back at President Muhammadu Buhari over the continued incarceration of her husband for no just cause.

Mrs. Sowore, while appearing as a guest on a television programme in the United States, said the accusations against her husband were baseless, adding that the government was yet to back their claims with evidence.

“They based it upon a meeting that he had with Nnamdi Kanu, who has an organization about Biafra.

“The two of them met and Yele (Sowore) made it public. In fact, he disagrees with some of Nnamdi Kanu’s rhetoric.

“Yele’s own thing was to bring in everybody’s voices so that Nigeria can be a country for pretty much all of its citizen.

“They also mentioned that he may have taken money from international countries and that he met some of them in Dubai but he has never been to Dubai before. No money basically has been found with him.

“So, those are the things that they’ve mentioned and associated with him but they basically have no ground for holding him and haven’t found any evidence.”
