The Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project (SERAP) has filed a lawsuit against President Muhammadu Buhari for allegedly deactivating all means of identification of Omoyele Sowore.
SERAP disclosed this in a post via its official Twitter account.
The Tweet read, “We’re suing the Buhari administration over reports that journalist Omoyele Sowore’s passport, voter card, national identity card, and driver’s license have been blatantly deactivated”.
“This is illegal and unconstitutional, and antithetical to the rule of law”, SERAP added.
the leader of Revolution NowSowore, through his news website Saharah reporters, had accused the federal government of deactivating his biometric identification on January 13, 2021.
“As a result of this, Sowore will not be able to use any of the national documents to carry out any transaction within and outside the country as the cards cannot be read biometrically”.
“President Muhammadu Buhari’s regime is yet to give any explanation for the move”, the post read.
