The politician posted a distress tweet at exactly 1:25 am which reads, “DSS invades Sowore’s.”
Later he added another tweet which could be a confirmation that his phone must have been seized while trying to raise the alarm about his arrest.
Reacting, Oby in a tweet called for Sowore’s release.
According to her “@AsoRock ought to know that they cannot sustain this unconstitutional habit of repression against #CitizensRights.
“All these persistent acts of @NGRPresident to shrink the Public Space with rabid level of intolerance for dissension will surely fail.”
