Court Fixes August 8 To Rule On Sowore’s Detention Order

Intro

The Federal High Court sitting in Abuja has fixed August 8 to rule on an application by the Department of State Security Service (DSS) seeking an order to detain the convener of the #RevolutionNow protests, Omoyele Sowore for 90 days, pending the conclusion of its investigation.

In an exparte motion marked FHC/ABJ/CS/ 915/19, the DSS is seeking the order of the court to detain him beyond the 48 hours of arrest required by law.

Sowore, who is the founder of Sahara Reporters and presidential candidate of the African Action Congress in the February 2019 elections, was arrested in the early hours of Saturday by operatives of the DSS in a hotel in Lagos.
