Former Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose has come down hard on a former presidential candidate and founder of the New York-based news site, Sahara Reporters.
Fayose said Sowore deserves the punishment he is currently getting from the federal government.
Sowore, who was a popular critic of Fayose when he was governor, is being held by the Nigeria’s intelligence agency,, the Department of State Services (DSS).
He is charged with treason felony for organizing a ‘Revolution Now” protest, which the government said was an attempt to disrupt peace in the nation.
He is also charged with cyberstalking President Muhammadu Buhari and money laundering.
Sowore has pleaded not guilty to the charges. Several weeks after meeting his bail conditions, the journalist is still being held.
Reacting to Sowore’s predicament, Fayose said Sowore contributed to making Buhari too powerful.
Fayose spoke on Wednesday, when he met social media personality, Kemi Olunloyo in a drugstore in Lagos.
In a post shared on her Facebook page, Olunloyo added that Fayose also accused Sowore of destroying the country.
Olunloyo wrote: #LIVE at a drugstore in Okeja, my good friend Ayodele Fayose who I bumped into. He told me that the state of the country has really saddened him. One of the true PATRIOTS of the Federal Republic of #Nigeria. Ayo blasted Sowore openly in front of me. Pharmacy security were stunned watching. Even said Yele destroyed Nigeria.
Recall that Fayose through one of his aides, had once described Sowore as a mad man trying to blackmail influential people who refused to give him money when he asked for it.
Many Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) members are mocking Sowore, saying those he was supporting then, are the same people who put him behind bars
