Breaking: Court refuses to grant application challenging Sowores detention

A Federal Court in Abuja has dismissed the application which challenges the detention of Omoyele Sowore, the convener of the Revolution Now protest.

Presiding judge, Evelyn Mata stated that hearing the application would mean a review of the directive issued to the Department for State Security, DSS.

A Federal High Court in Abuja had granted the request by the Department of State Services (DSS) to further detain Sowore for 45 days pending the conclusion of its investigation.

Justice Taiwo Taiwo, in a ruling on an ex-parte motion by the DSS, said he would allow the agency detain Sowore for 45 days in the first instance, which could be renewed upon an application, to enable the DSS complete its investigation.
