For any harm that comes to Sowore, there will be consequences - US Senator warns (Video)


Senator Bob Menendez (D-N.J.) granted the press conference following the arbitrarily re-arrested of Sowore in a Federal high court in Abuja, yesterday by DSS.

Sowore, was first arrested in August and despite two court orders for his release, DSS has refused to release him until Thursday. On Friday morning, he was later re-arrested in the courtroom where they also threatened to shoot him.

Senator Menendez has been involved in securing Mr. Sowore’s release after his family in New Jersey approached his office about it. Amnesty International declared Sowore a prisoner of conscious on November 20th.

Watch the video below.

During the Press conference, Sowore’s wife, Opeyemi Sowore said;

“I am truly afraid for his life and, at this point, I believe the only way to bring him home is with the help of the United States” “I can’t say how grateful I am to not be at this alone—sitting in my room this morning at 4 a.m., I truly felt helpless—but knowing that Senator Menendez is here supporting me and he’s helping to engage the U.S. government gives me hope that my husband will be home soon.”

“I am truly shaken to my core at what I witnessed this morning,” Mrs. Sowore said. “My husband was strangled and forcefully removed from the courtroom. The judge had to run and hide for her own safety. How do I tell my children, who, after 125 days, have for the very first time spoken to their dad and seen his face [over Facetime after he was initially released], that he is again in detention and may not be coming home for Christmas?”

  1. I’d like to remind Bob Menendez, that Nigerians are not like Libyans, Syrians, Bolivians, Iraqis, Egyptians, etc, where the United States corrupt and recruit and pay a few deluded individuals, like in Honkong, to try to stir up trouble and destabilize a country that resists their dictatorship, like in Ukraine.Sowore or whatever his name is, may be speaking for America, but definitely not speaking for all law abiding Nigerians.Nigeria now has options in China, India and Russia.I do not even know why we have dealing with the USA, after several years of trying, through the CIA, to divide Nigeria into several countries they could run over.Nigerians are to smart for that. We know a united strong and proud Nigeria is against your malign interests of the country. Bob Menendez, try and direct your watch to the malign activities of the USA around the world, violating all international laws that do not fit your malign agenda,violating the human rights everyone who refused to be your puppet,creating choas and starvation around the world. Deal with the rock in your eyes before the speck in someone else eye.Everybody is getting sick of your childish and narcissistic propogandas and meddling in everybody’s business!!!!.

    • So there is unity in Nigeria the poor are not getting poorer while the rich keep getting richer bruv revolution is coming with or without Sowore
