Court orders release of Omoyele Sowore

A federal High Court sitting in Abuja today ordered the release of the Convener of RevolutionNow Protest, Omoyele Sowore, to his counsel, Femi Falana, who must produce him whenever the court wants him.

The court in its ruling, led by Justice Taiwo Taiwo, also ordered Sowore to submit his travel document to court within 48 hours of the ruling.

The court had earlier struck out the application by the DSS seeking to further detain Sowore for additional 20 days. The court’s decision followed the withdrawal of the motion by the government’s counsel.

Sowore was arrested on August 3rd by the Depart of the State Services over allegation of treason and money laundering.
