“The calls were heavily monitored,” Opeyemi Sowore told NorthJersey Record.

”Sowore has used the word revolution to promote democratic governance, including in the protest he was organizing in August, which called for education, security, infrastructure and fair wages, but the Nigerian government sees the term as negative” Opeyemi Sowore said.
