The hope of the publisher of SaharaReporters and convener of RevolutionNow protest, Omoyele Sowore, to breathe the air of freedom soon, has been dashed.
This is as the Federal High Court in Abuja today granted the Department of State Security, DSS, the permission to detain Sowore in its facilities for the next forty-five days, pending the conclusion of its investigation.
Justice Taiwo Taiwo, in his ruling on an ex parte application by the State Security Service, held that the detention order would be renewable after the expiration of first forty five days on September 21, 2019.
You may recall that the DSS had on Tuesday applied for permission to keep Sowore for ninety days to investigate him over his call for revolution ahead of the RevolutionNow protests which held in some parts of the country on Monday.
