Operatives of the Department of State Services (DSS) on Friday morning rearrested the convener of #RevolutionNow, Omoyele Sowore, and his co-defendant Olawale Bakare.
They are currently being detained at the DSS office in Abuja.
Sowore was rearrested following an earlier attempt by DSS operatives to arrest him inside the courtroom of a Federal High Court in Abuja.
After a stand-still inside the courtroom, Sowore’s lawyer, Femi Falana insisted that the arrest should be effected outside the court premises.
His rearrest comes barely 24 hours after he was released alongside his co-defendant, Olawale Bakare.
They were released at exactly 7:15 pm on Thursday, hours after Justice Ijeoma Ojukwu of the Federal High Court in Abuja, had expressed displeasure over their continued detention by the agency.
Sowore was arrested on August 3, just days to a planned protest tagged #revolutionnow.
Both he and his co-defendant are facing seven counts bordering on conspiracy to commit treasonable felony in breach of Section 516 of the Criminal Code Act, money laundering and cybercrimes, among others.
They pleaded not guilty to the charge and were granted bail on October 4, in the sum of N100m and N50m respectively with two sureties in like sum.
