A Federal High Court in Lagos on Tuesday, September 24 has ignored the application of the DSS to further detain Omoyele Sowore and ordered his immediate release.
Justice Taiwo Taiwo, who presided over the ruling, declared that the #RevolutionNow mastermind be released to his lawyer, Mr. Femi Falana (SAN). Sowore is to be brought for arraignment whenever he is summoned.
Justice Taiwo said the detained activist was to deposit his passport and other travel documents to ensure his availability for trial.
The decision by the court will be a welcome respite to the embattled #RevolutionNow Convener, his loyal followers, friends, and well wishers, who have all been agitating for his release.
Sowore had opened up in an interrogatory session about being a victim of maltreatment while in DSS detention.
