Nigerian singer, Banky W has reacted to the release of Nigerian activist, Omoyele Sowore.
The singer turned politician took to his Instagram page to express his delight following the release of Omoyele Sowore. Banky W is thankful about the ruling of the court which stated that Sowore be released without fail on bail. He went on to explain that the country has a way of punishing the innocent and crushing the dreams, rights, and hopes of its citizens.

I’m so thankful that our Justice System made the right call by granting @YeleSowore’s release. Nigeria has a way of constantly punishing the innocent, and trampling on the rights, dreams and hopes of the regular citizens. Every time our leaders do blatant wrong and get away with it, we lose a little piece of our soul. We become numb, we lose hope, and we subconsciously accept that this is how things are and there’s nothing we can say or do to change it.

You didn’t need to be a voter or volunteer for Mr Sowore, to see that this was clearly an infringement on a basic human right and a grave injustice; freedom of speech and the right to peacefully protest is the unassailable right of every Nigerian citizen.
