A political activist and former Deputy National Publicity Secretary of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Comrade Timi Frank has commended the senators of the United States of America and the America government for putting pressures on Nigerian government to the release of Omoyele Sowore and by extension, Ibrahim Dasuki.
Frank also thank all Nigerians, especially a human right lawyer, Femi Falana, who stood up to fight for justice even in the mist of treat to their lives, posterity will judge you favorably.
Frank said if not for the pressure by the USA government and some of its senators, Sowore would still be languishing in DSS detention without charge.
The political activist, however, declared that “truly the American government is the police of the world.”
Reacting through a statement on Wednesday in Abuja, to the release of both Sowore and Dasuki, Frank asked General Buhari’s government to apologise to the duo for trampling on their rights.
He also called on the USA, EU, UN and all lovers of democracy including Nigerians in diaspora to put more pressure on the Nigerian government to release other political prisoners, saying “General Buhari’s government has succeeded in oppressing its citizens, no more freedom of speech and the right to assemble. Just a few days ago, General Buhari/APC thugs beat to Deji Adeyanju to stupor for protesting against the continued detention of Sowore, yet the ruling party had the nerve to accuse the opposition party of masterminding the attack, indeed this government is not only clueless but shameless.
“I appeal to the USA, EU and all democratic countries where rule of law applies to issue visa ban on the government officials of this clueless government whose stock in trade is to disobey court orders that don’t favor them, oppress Nigerians by depriving them of their fundamental human right to associate and express themselves freely, this government is very powerful when it comes to oppressing innocent Nigerians but very weak when it comes to fighting corruption and insurgency.
“No government has disgraced and embarrassed Nigeria before the international community like Buhari government, it took the USA senators to speak out before sowore was released while our Nigerian senators are busy rubber stamping all Buhari’s request to the senate.
“I call on the USA government despite the blackmail to do more to ensure that other political detainees and journalists are freed.
“Sowore like Dasuki were granted bail by courts of competent jurisdiction but the tyrant General Buhari and the cabal decided to flaunt the order. Dasuki spent 4 years in DSS detention despite several bail granted by the courts while Sowore was rearrested a day after he was granted bail without charges.
“It is a shame that this government cannot put its house in order, they speak from both sides of the mouth as they are clueless.
“Just last week, the AGF Malami said he cannot order the DSS to release Sowore without recourse to the court, yet a week later, he ordered the same DSS to release Sowore.
“What has changed in a week to make the AGF order the DSS to release Sowore? It is the pressure from the international community, especially the American senators and the USA government that compelled this clueless government to release Sowore.
“A few days ago, Femi Adesina, the spokesperson of General Buhari said nobody appointed the USA the police of the world, yet a few days later, they have not only released Sowore but they also released Dasuki and the AGF suddenly remember that he can appeal their bail. The fear of the police of the world made you release Sowore,” Frank stated.

Humanitarian Minister, Sadiya Farouq Marries Chief Of Air Staff, Sadique Abubakar In A Private Ceremony
About one year after grabbing the headlines for being President Muhammadu Buhari’s potential bride, Nigeria’s Minister of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development, Sadiya Umar Farouq, has tied the nuptial knots with Chief of Air Staff, Air Marshal Sadique Abubakar, in a secret ceremony in Abuja.
The extremely private event, which took place last Friday, was the culmination of a love affair between the two public figures that dates back to more than a year ago, it was confirmed.
However, in an attempt to get at the First Lady, members of the cabal around Buhari approached her parents in a bid to have her marry the President.
But with that episode now firmly behind them, Farouq and Abubakar proceeded to cement their relationship last Friday in the private ceremony.
The minister, who clocks 46 on November 5, has never been married and has no children.
The Chief of Air Staff, who is from Bauchi State, on the other hand, has 10 children from two wives – one of whom he has since divorced.
The two have kept their marriage a secret just the same way their relationship escaped public radar.
Farouq was appointed minister by President Buhari in 2019 while Abubakar, who is among service chiefs Nigerians have asked the Commander-In-Chief to fire for their poor tackling of insecurity in the country, has been in office since July 2015.
SaharaReporters reliably gathered that the marriage was delayed till last Friday after the controversy that followed the rumoured affair between Farouq and Buhari in October 2019 where it was alleged that the President was set to take her for a wife.

The news set the entire media space on fire, leaving many disappointed at the end when the purported wedding never became a reality.
Perhaps to fully banish the ghost of that rumour and keep it several radius away from her husband, it was reliably gathered that Farouq and Abubakar’s wedding was facilitated by the First Lady, Mrs Aisha Buhari, apparently in a self-saving move.
Although, it was rumoured that she dated and was planning to marry Buhari last year, Farouq, who had been around the President since she was a teenager, has never dated the retired military general.
