Omoyele Sowore has allegedly been rearrested by DSS.
Nigerian activist, former presidential candidate, and founder of Sahara Reporters, Sowore and his mandate have been rearrested by the DSS, Sahara Reporters reveal.
Sahara Reporters took their social media page to share the news, less than 24-hours after he was released and the court ordered DSS to pay him a fine of N100,000.
On August 3, 2019 Sowore was arrested by the Nigerian Department of Security Services for alleged treason after calling for a protest tagged RevolutionNow.
On Thursday he was released by the secret police after 125 days in detention despite two court orders directing his release after meeting stringent bail conditions in that period.
DSS Marshall stormed the Federal court in Abuja and reportedly chased the judge out of the courtroom with a gun which Sowore claims he tried using to shoot him after he also dragged him down.
He has now been taken to the DSS headquarters.
