Sowore reacts as court bars Peter Obi supporters from gathering at Lekki Toll-Gate
The presidential candidate of the African Action Congress (AAC), Omoyele Sowore has condemned the court order stopping the Labour Party and supporters of its presidential candidate, Peter Obi from holding a rally at Lekki Toll-Gate, Lagos.
PRESSINFORMAT had reported that a Federal High Court sitting in Lagos State stopped the Obi supporters popularly known as Obidients from converging at the Toll Gate.
The Obidients had scheduled ObiDatti23 Forward Ever Rally to be held on October 1, 2022 in Lagos. They planned to converge at the facility before proceeding to other places.
But Justice Daniel Osiagor who gave the order said the LP supporters can pass through the facility for its rally but must not converge there.
Reacting, Sowore in a post on his official social media handles, said it was dangerous that a judge could give such an order stopping the peaceful gathering.
He wrote, “It is completely wrong for anyone to have gone to court to stifle a legitimate political gathering by @PeterObi supporters at #Lekkitollgate and equally dangerous that a judge gave an order stopping the gathering.
“It is a matter of time before a crazy injunction is granted that opposition groups can’t campaign in @OfficialAPCNg stronghold. I totally condemn these acts”.
