The Department of State Service (DSS) on Tuesday reportedly applied to the Federal High Court in Abuja for an order to allow it keep Revolution Now convener, Mr. Omoyele Sowore, for 90 days.

Sowore, who is Sahara Reporter Publisher, was arrested on Saturday by operatives of the DSS ahead of the Monday’s #RevolutionNow protest, which he had spearheaded.

DSS’ lawyer, G.O. Abadua, appeared before Justice Taiwo Taiwo to move the agency’s ex parte application for detention the presidential candidate of the African Action Congress in the February 2019 general election, for 90 days.

After moving the application, marked FHC/ABJ/915/19, the judge adjourned ruling till Thursday.

He said the adjournment would afford him the time to watch the video evidence attached to the application by the security agency.
