Prominent human rights activist, Omoyele Sowore has disclosed that the Department of State Service (DSS) stopped him from visiting the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu.
Sowore lamented that he was unable to gain access to Kanu after the agitator invited him.
The activist stated that he spent hours at the DSS headquarters in Abuja on Thursday and was not allowed to see him.
He revealed that it is the second time the DSS has refused to grant him access to Kanu.
Sowore noted that President Bola Tinubu’s administration has continued to demonstrate intolerance towards lawful agitation for self-determination.
He insisted that Tinubu’s administration is not different from that of his predecessor, Muhammadu Buhari.
Speaking via Twitter he wrote, “Visitation to Nnamdi Kanu botched by DSS
“#FreeNnamdiKanuNow I spend several hours at the @OfficialDSSNG headquarters in Abuja, I was invited by Onyedu @MaziNnamdiKanu to pay him a visit in custody, however, after hours of rigmarole the DSS told me I can’t see him today. This is the second time I am being denied lawfully ordered visitation to Mazi since his illegal abduction from Kenya. The @officialABAT regime continue to demonstrate intolerance towards lawful agitation for self determination. Tinubu is not different from @Mbuhari. #Revolutiinnow.”
