TheCable : ‘DSS can’t stop the revolution’ — Twitter reactions to Sowore’s arrest

The arrest of Omoyele Sowore, convener of #RevolutionNow, has sparked an outrage on social media.

TheCable had reported how operatives of the Department of State Services (DSS) picked him up from his residence in the early hours of Saturday.

He was picked up exactly 48 hours to a nationwide protest being organised by a movement he leads.

Below are tweets on his arrest.

Security has totally collapsed under @MBuhari 's watch but what does he do? Send the DSS after Nigerians. This is the height of it. Shameful isn't enough to describe it. #FreeSowore

When insurgents attack, they kill the masses. When the masses speak, the government kill the masses. It ends now. Democracy will be redefined. Nigeria will be great. #RevolutionNow #FreeSowore

If news report of DSS picking up @YeleSowore is confirmed then those behind his arrest sure did not learn from the past, he just had you were he wants you to be. Now we won't know if #RevolutionNow would have really taken over Nigerian government on Monday. It's now #FreeSowore

Just Confirmed that one of the leaders of the #RevolutionNow movement Comrade Omoyele Sowore @YeleSowore has been arrested by armed men of the DSS overnight. Those who make peaceful negotiations impossible makes violent revolution inevitable. It has started.

@MBuhari's Administration has energy to arrest protesters and those who tried their best to fight for justice, no energy to arrest killer herdsmen, no energy to arrest corrupt APC members, no energy to restructure Nigeria.

Sowore arrested because of his planned revolutionary protest. This is our President protesting in 2015. The motive of Sowore might be cynical but arresting him is a violation of his fundamental human right.#FreeSowore

Wait a minute, who advised Buhari led government to arrest Omoyele Sowore for the planned protest? They just exposed their foolishness.

I don't blame them when all the advisers and Ministers could not reason that the world has gone beyond tyranny.

Just waking up and getting ready to go for my morning work out and I thought to check my messages... I just saw Trending on Twitter. Who in the hottest part of hell is advising this evil administration of @MBuhari and @ProfOsinbajo?

People will still justify the arrest of Sowore.

The arrest will even make the revolution more momentous.

Security agencies that can’t protect lives and properties during the day but can easily creep into someone’s house in the middle of the night to stage a force arrest.

We demand the immediate release of Omoyele Sowore and all political prisoners, including Sheikh Ibrahim Zakzakky. We will not rest till the revolution triumphs. We will not be deterred. We will not accept the continued incarceration of Comrade Sowore.

The @MBuhari govt has made a huge mistake by arresting @YeleSowore over the protest. It has only given the much needed momentum to the struggle. By Monday, they shall hear from Nigerians if they don't

Part of the Obasanjo’s letter to Buhari. Nigeria is a ticking time bomb and might explode anytime soon. We all cannot run away from our beloved country but we can support a movement and join the protest in making our nation better. #FreeSowore
