The Abuja division of the Federal High Court has ordered the Department of State Security Service (DSS) to detain the convener of #RevolutionNow protests, Omoyele Sowore for 45 days with effect from today, August 8.

Vacation Judge, Justice Taiwo Taiwo gave the order in a ruling on an application by the Department of State Security Service (DSS) seeking an order to detain Sowore for 90 days pending the conclusion of its investigation.

Sowore, who is the publisher 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 Department of State Services in a hotel in Lagos.

The state agency said Sowore was arrested on account of the #RevolutionNow protest which he had spearheaded.
