Court orders release of Sowore

A federal High Court in Abuja has ordered the release of the Convener of #RevolutionNow Protest, Omoyele Sowore.

The court earlier struck out the application by the Department of Social Security (DSS) to detain the publisher of SaharaReporters and convener of RevolutionNow, Omoyele Sowore.

The judge said Sowore should be released to his lawyer, Mr. Femi Falana (SAN) who must produce him whenever the court wants him.

The court in a ruling on Tuesday also ordered Sowore to deposit his travel document to court within 48 hours of the ruling.

Mr Sowore, the publisher of online news platform, Sahara Reporters, was arrested on August 3rd, two days before a rally tagged” Revolution now” for allegedly plotting to overthrow an elected government.
