DSS Releases Sowore

The Department of State Services has released #RevolutionNow convener and presidential candidate of the African Action Congress in the February 2019 general elections, Mr. Omoyele Sowore.
His co-detainee, Adebayo Bakare, was also freed.
They were freed hours after Justice Ijeoma Ojukwu of the Federal High Court in Abuja had given the DSS 24-hour ultimatum to release the two men.
Their lead defence counsel, Mr. Femi Falana (SAN), confirmed this development to Punch Newspaper on Thursday.
He said they were released about 7pm .
He also said the agency had paid the sum of N100,000 awarded against it by Justice Ojukwu for making the court to adjourn till Friday for frivolous reasons on Thursday.
The two men, who are now being prosecuted by the Federal Government on charges of treasonable felony, were arrested in August over their call for ‘Revolution’ protest against what they described as “bad governance.”
But the DSS continued to hold them in custody despite separate court orders ordering their release.
