 every citizen has the right to protest freely.


The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) has called on Federal Government to release Mr Omoyele sowore and 26 other protesters arrested on account of the #RevolutionNow protest on Monday.

The body stated that sowore only exercised within the room of his civic rights.

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 Lagos.

The protests held on Aug. 5 in some states of the federation, with security agencies arresting some protesters.

While sowore was moved to Abuja on Sunday and currently being detained in the custody of the dss, 26 other protesters have been arraigned in a Lagos court.

NLC General Secretary, Dr Peter Ozo-Eson in a statement on Wednesday said the right to peaceful protests, assembly and association are fully guaranteed by the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria under sections 39 and 40.




According to him, the NLC view the violent attack on the peaceful protesters by security forces as a total violation of their fundamental rights as guaranteed by the constitution.

“Besides, peaceful protests against perceived anti-people government policies is one of the critical fundamental rights that expands the entrenchment and growth of democracy.

“sowore and other protesters were not carrying arms against the state and we, therefore, demand their immediate release unconditionally.”


What is the Sowore and the #revolutionNow movement doing about his arrest? 


Convener of the #RevolutionNow movement, Omoyele sowore, has dragged the Federal Government and the Department of State Services (dss) before a Federal High Court sitting in Abuja.

Igbere TV reports that the activist, on Friday, applied to the Federal High Court to set aside its previous order permitting the dss to detain him for 45 days.

sowore, publisher of SaharaReporters, through his lawyer, Femi Falana (SAN), contended, among others in the 19-ground application sighted by Igbere TV, that the order issued by the court breached his constitutionally guaranteed fundamental rights.

The former presidential candidate insisted that the order amounted to “legalising the illegality” of his detention for about four days prior to the issuance of the court order on Thursday.

Filed along with his application was an affidavit of urgency seeking an urgent hearing of the suit on the grounds that it “is one of fundamental importance that affects salient fundamental rights of the applicant herein.”
