As a matter of fact, Falz had slammed the Federal government for detaining Sowore just a couple of weeks ago.
Specifically, Falz, in an Instagram post on Monday, October 1st called the government’s action “shameful.”
“This government has shown a disgraceful level of disregard for democracy and the Rule of Law.
“The Court has ordered that Sowore be released but our government of the day has refused to obey the court. This man has been detained for over 50 days, obviously without any conviction.
“Despicable behaviour. Very very shameful. #FreeSoworeNow,” he wrote.
