Femi Falana: If Sowore is charged, Buhari will be my first witness in court because he called for ‘revolution’ in 2011

Femi Falana: If Sowore is charged, Buhari will be my first witness in court because he called for ‘revolution’ in 2011

Senior Advocate of Nigeria Femi Falana (SAN), has warned that Buhari will be his first witness in court if the Department of State Services (DSS) arraigns the convener of #RevolutionNow movement Omoyele Sowore, in court. 

The human rights activist and Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN) made the disclosure at an event organised by the Chartered Institute of Bankers of Nigeria (CIBN). Revealing that he has been in contact with Sowore following his arrest on Saturday August 3, Falana recounted how the Nigerian President “called for revolution in 2011” though he didn’t mention his name directly.  He further disclosed that the former Presidential candidate of the African Action Congress (AAC) refused to write statement, insisting he must speak to his lawyer. 

“I do hope that the government will not be stupid to charge Sowore. In fairness to them (DSS), they gave him a telephone to phone me. Of course I knew they were monitoring the phone, and I told him I hope they won’t charge you, because if they do, some of the people in government will be our witnesses,” he said. 

“You know why? One of them, I won’t mention his name. In 2011, he asked Nigerians to learn from the Egyptian revolution and be ready for a revolution in Nigeria. So, he will be my first witness. 

“The late Chief Gani Fawehinmi and four other people were charged with treasonable felony by the Ibrahim Babangida junta. I was one of them. We were detained in Kuje prison for two months. We were taken to the court, and what was the offence? I think we went beyond Sowore. We posted thousands of posters across the country, that Babangida must go. That was the treasonable felony” he said. 

Though it is still not clear if the DSS will be charging Omoyele Sowore to court, however it be noted that President Buhari called for ‘revolution’ through an electoral process in 2011.
