Sowore made this known via his social media platforms while reacting to a lawsuit filed by 10 lawyers who asked the Federal High Court in Lagos to stop the Labour Party, its candidates, and supporters from having a rally tagged “#Obidatti23 Forward Ever Rally” on October 1 or any other date, in the state.

The presidential candidate of the African Action Congress, Omoyele Sowore, on Thursday said no authority can stop the planned rally of his Labour Party counterpart, Peter Obi in Lagos.

Sowore made this known via his social media platforms while reacting to a lawsuit filed by 10 lawyers who asked the Federal High Court in Lagos to stop the Labour Party, its candidates, and supporters from having a rally tagged “#Obidatti23 Forward Ever Rally” on October 1 or any other date, in the state.

The lawyers specifically asked the court to restrain the party; its presidential candidate, Obi; his running mate, Yusuf Datti Baba-Ahmed, one Julius Abure, and their loyalists from holding the rally, until the hearing and determination of their motion-on-notice of September 12.

The plaintiffs are Adedotun Ajulo Esq., Salamatu Suleiman Lewi Esq., Hakeem Ijaduola, Esq., Ogunbona Akinpelu Esq., Owolabi K. Oluwasegun, Esq., Mogbojuri Kayode Esq., Wuyep Mantim Nadom Esq., Dimimu Mabel, Esq., Kolawole Salami, Esq. and Wale Abe Lawrence, Esq.

The suit was filed against the 1st to 10th defendants; Obi, LP, Baba-Ahmed, Abure, the Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Commissioner of Police (Lagos State Command), Director-General (Department of State Services), Lekki Concession Company (LCC) Limited, Attorney-General of Lagos State and the Governor of Lagos State.

In an ex parte motion filed before Justice Daniel Osiagor through their counsel, Mr. Dada Awosika, SAN; Temilolu Ademolekun and others, the plaintiffs argued that a repeat or celebration of the “infamous” #EndSARS protest of 2020 under the political guise of “#Obidatti23 Forward Ever Rally” will cause a breakdown of peace and will result in a post-traumatic stress disorder for them and the public.

However, in his tweet, Sowore said, “NOBODY Can stop @peterob @UKLabour rally in Lagos I guess these are Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu minions suing to stop Labour Party and Mr. Peter Obi from staging a rally in Lagos. These people have gone nuts, and must be disgraced out of Nigeria’s political space.

“Well, your problems just got worse because we are planning rallies on the same day across Nigeria and on October 20 2022 to commemorate #EndSARS massacre perpetrated by Muhammadu Buhari and his APC cohorts in Lagos, so be prepared for your worst nightmare! These acts will not delay their day of judgement. #WeCantContinueLikeThis.”

“PS: The position stated here is our long held stance that nobody has a right to truncate the rights of our compatriots to freely assemble!” Sowore added in his Facebook post.
