Judge Denies Fg’s Request To Detain Sowore For 90 Days

A Federal High Court in Abuja, Nigeria’s
capital, has denied the request of the
Federal Government for an ex-parte order to
keep convener of RevolutionNow movement,
Omoyele Sowore, for at least 90 days.
The human rights crusader was picked up in
a Lagos hotel in the early hours of Saturday
by operatives of the Department of State
Services and has been kept in custody ever
since despite growing calls for his
immediate release.
The President Muhammadu Buhari
administration had accused Sowore of
committing a treasonable act for calling on
Nigerians to pour out on the streets 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.
