The Department of State Service (DSS) has filed an application before a federal high court in Abuja to detain Omoyele Sowore for 90 days.
The activist was arrested in the early hour of Saturday at his hotel in Lagos state ahead of the protest scheduled to hold yesterday, Monday the 5th July.
Sowore tagged the protest #RevolutionNow, a protest that he intended to force the government to address insecurity and good governance.
In a motion filed by the DSS’s counsel, G.O Agbadua with case number: FHC/ABJ/CS/915/19, the agency prayed the court to grant its request to detain Sowore for 90 days to enable it enough time to investigate him.
Agbadua told the judge, Taiwo Taiwo that he added video evidence to the application.
The Spokesman for the DSS Peter Afunaya said in Lagos on Sunday that Sowore crossed the red line.
Sowore has broken the silence from detention urging the agency to release the innocent Nigerians arrested on Monday.
