Revolution Now Convener, Sahara Reporters publisher, Omoyele Sowore has been rearrested alongside Olawale Bakare by the Department of State Services (DSS).
Eye9ja reports that the rearrest of the duo comes after a stand-off that lasted almost two hours at the Federal High Court in Abuja on Friday, December 6.
The duo was rearrested by the DSS operatives on account of fresh charges.
Supporters of the duo had resisted attempts by men of the DSS to arrest them in the court, but the men overpowered them.
This comes after Eye9ja had reported that some DSS operatives were after Sowore and Bakare, as there were earlier attempts to arrest the duo on Friday morning.
The rearrests comes after they were released by the DSS on Thursday night after the Court’s verdict ordering their release.
They were rearrested after waiting in the court for about two hours after the attempt their lawyer, Femi Falana, who had denied knowledge of such fresh charges, led them downstairs where armed DSS personel were waiting.
Falana told them they could not arrest within the premises of the court.
They moved towards the gate the court, and after some arguments, Sowore and Bakare were eventually taken to the DSS facility in Falana’s car driven by a DSS personnel and escorted by several other DSS trucks
Below is a video obtained by Eye9ja and showing the moment that transpired in court.
It is safe to say that, President @MBuhari years in office have highlighted the difference between accepting the principle of democracy & being a true democrat.
