Sowore To Remain In DSS Custody, Court Rules


The Federal High Court in Abuja has turned down the motioned filed by Omoyele Sowore who happens to be the convenor of #RevolutionNow, disputing his 45 days detention by the Department of State Security (DSS).

Justice Nkeonye Maya forwarded the case back to Justice Taiwo for further hearing on Wednesday after denying all the applications.

Human rights lawyer, Femi Falana, filed the applications on behalf of his client, Mr Sowore.

Falana, who had asked the court to set aside the ex-parte order granted by Justice Taiwo, also applied for bail orally when Justice Maha rejected the earlier application.

Sowore has been in the custody of the DSS since August 2.

Justice Taiwo had on August 8 ordered his detention for 45 days at the instance of the DSS to enable the secret police carry out and conclude its investigation on allegations levied against him.
