One of the few living human right activist and lawyer, Mr Femi Falana (SAN) has lambasted the powers in the corridor of power at Abuja for daring to charge Omoyele Sowore for treason.
In the video clip that was released by Famous News monitored on the Facebook by SOJ WORLDWIDE ONLINE NEWS reporter, Falana argued that,
“…meanwhile, the man (Sowore) who is accused of causing a revolution is in detention and many Nigerians have asked me, ‘Femi, this young man (Sowore) went too far, how can he be calling for a revolution?” “I said where is the offence?”
” Terrorism under what section, treason under what section of the criminal code? I do hope that the government would not charge him, the government would not be stupid to charge Sowore, you know why, he has briefed me.
In fairness to the SSS, what he told them yesterday, “I won’t make a statement unless I have spoken to my lawyer.” And they said who is your lawyer?
He said Femi Falana, in fairness to them, they asked him to phone me they gave him the phone, of course I knew they were monitoring our discussions.
“I told him, I hope they won’t charge you for treason, if they do, some of the people in government will be our witnesses, you know why, one of them I won’t mention his name, in 2011 he asked the Nigerians to learn from the Egyptian revolution and be ready for revolution.. So he would be my first witness.”
Falana went back to memory lane when he, Gani Fawehinmi and three others were charged to court for treason under the former President Ibrahim Babangida.
