Sowore: Gani Adams Says Buhari's Government Not Different From Abacha Junta
Quote:Aare Onakakanfo of Yorubaland, Iba Gani Abiodun Ige Adams, has described the re-arrest of Omoyele Sowore, convener of the #RevolutionNow movement, shortly after his release as a national tragedy.

Adams said the situation that played out at the court only indicated that Nigeria had drifted as a democratic nation.

Speaking at the weekend, he insisted that the situation in the country had justified that the rule of law was gradually dying, while the Federal Government remained helpless.

"What happened at the court reminded me of the dark era of the military but, ironically, the present government under President Muhammadu Buhari is like the military junta of the late Sani Abacha in which the military brigandage held sway for years.

“I have been watching events as they unfold, but I am saddened that the event that transpired in the court was a testimony that Nigeria has a long way to go.

The Department of State Services (DSS) failed to respect the rule of law and it was a sad reminder of the military era,” he said.

Adams expressed sadness that the prolonged detention of Sowore had affected the image of Nigeria, because the world was watching the government with keen interest.

He said: “This is not the democracy we fought for between 1993 and 1998. I remember vividly as activists and pro-democracy groups, we put our lives on the line to ensure that our dreams for this democracy became a reality. Now, democracy is here, but we have lost touch with the ideals of a democratic setting as it is practised in other climes.”
