Only occasionally do Africa’s hidden wars make the front pages, as with
the recent coverage of the refugee crisis in Darfur in western Sudan.
Yet the Sudanese conflict has been raging for years with virtually no
mention in the Western press.
Today (7 July) two members of the Democratic Socialist Movement (DSM),
Ojo Olajire (OJ) and Peluola Adewale (Pelad), were arrested by members
of Nigerian Police Force at Oshodi bus stop, in Oshodi Isolo local
government in Lagos State.
The Committee for a Workers’ International deeply regrets to announce
the death, at the age of 41, of Rotimi Ewebiyi, a leader of the
Democratic Socialist Movement (DSM) in Nigeria and a member of the CWI’s
International Executive Committee.
