Breaking: Court throws out DSS’ application for further detention of Sowore

A Federal High Court, on Tuesday, September 24, threw out an application by the Department of State Services (DSS) asking for further detention of Omoyele Sowore, convener of the RevolutionNow movement.

Television Continental reports that the court’s action is the result of the withdrawal of the application by the state counsel.

At the time of this report, it was learnt that Sowore’s counsel, Femi Falana, was seeking the court to order the immediate release of his client arguing that the prosecution is no longer interested in keeping him.

The oral application has, however, been challenged by the counsel to the DSS, who informed the court that a suite has been filed and that in it, Sowore is accused of treasonable felony which is a capital offence.
