No. Sequitur and non sequitur are *nouns*. Sorry.

While you'd like to think that you can negate sequitur with a
non- prefix, unfortunately the phrase "non sequitur" has entered the
language in its own right, and you misspelled it.

Try again. Or just put your hands up and say "sorry for the fuckup."
