The Aare Ona Kakanfo of Yorubaland, Otunba Gani Adams, has described the rearrest of pro-democracy campaigner and journalist, Omoyele Sowore, on Friday at the Federal High Court, Abuja, by operatives of the Department of State Services less than 24 hours after he was released on bail after 125 days in detention as a national tragedy.

Adams said the situation that played out at the court has only indicated that Nigeria had lost its drift as a democratic nation.

According to him, the incident showed that the rule of law was gradually dying, while the Federal Government remains helpless. 

He said, “With what happened at the court, it reminded me of the dark era of the military but ironically, the present government under President Muhammadu Buhari is likened to the military junta of late Sani Abacha where the military brigand 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 had a long way to go. 

“The Department of State Services had failed to respect the rule of law and it was a sad reminder of the military era.
