Sowore, Bakare, DSS

The Department of State Service (DSS) has finally released the convener of #RevolutionNow protest, Omoyele Sowore and his co-accused, Olawale Bakare.

Eye9ja reports that the release of the duo was confirmed by Sahara Reporters, a media outlet owned by Sowore.

Sowore and Bakare were let off the hook of the DSS around 7:15 pm last night

They were released to their lead counsel and Senior Advocate of Nigeria, SAN, Mr Femi Falana.

The release of Sowore and Bakare comes barely hours after an Abuja Federal High Court, on Thursday ordered for his release within 24 hours.

Eye9ja recalls that Justice Ijeoma Ojukwu also ordered the DSS to pay the sum of N100,000 to Sowore, for refusing to release him on bail despite two court orders to that effect.

The judge consequently adjourned the trial of the case brought against them by the Nigerian Government until December 6 for continuation.

Sowore had since been in the DSS custody after he was arrested for allegedly calling for a protest themed #RevolutionNow.
