Justice Taiwo Taiwo of the Federal High Court, Abuja will on Thursday, July 8 rule on the application by the Department of State Services (DSS) seeking to detain the publisher of Sahara Reporters and convener of #RevolutionNow protests, Omoyele Sowore for 90 days.
DSS had on Tuesday evening in an exparte motion marked FHC/ABJ/CS/915/19 filed by its counsel, G.O Abudua sought to detain Sowore for 90 days pending the conclusion of its investigation.
The DSS is seeking to prosecute him on charges bordering on incitement and treason. He was arrested on account of the #RevolutionNow protest, which he had spearheaded.
The trial judge, Justice Taiwo Taiwo, after listening to the submission of the DSS lawyer, said he needed time to watch the video clips attached to the motion.
