University of Lagos bans Omoyele Sowore from speaking at events

Omoyele Sowore, human rights activist and pro-democracy campaigner, has been barred from speaking at an event inside the University of Lagos.

The development is reportedly connected to the planned mass demonstrations to be led by Sowore on August 5th.

The Muslim Students Society of Nigeria, UNILAG branch, had earlier invited Sowore as a guest speaker for an academic counselling seminar set to hold on July 3, 2019, at the J.F Ade Ajayi Auditorium. He was, however, barred abruptly from speaking by the group on July 31, 2019, in a “regrettable correspondence”.
