A Federal High Court in Abuja, Nigeria’s capital has denied the request of the Federal Government to keep convener of RevolutionNow movement, Omoyele Sowore, for at least 90 days.
The presidential candidate of the AAC in the last presidential election and publisher of Sahara reporters was arrested in a Lagos hotel in the early hours of Saturday by operatives of the Department of State Services. Ago
The Federal Government had accused Sowore of committing a treasonable act for calling for a revolution thereby inciting the masses against the federal government on August 5, 2019 to protest against his government’s failure to improve the living conditions of Nigerians.
Many of the protesters, who took to the streets in major cities across the country, were met with harassment and arrest from security operatives.
In its application on Tuesday, the FG through the DSS claimed that the 90-day window would enable it to conclude investigations into acts of terrorism it is accusing Sowore of.
