The Pan-Niger Delta Forum (PANDEF) has called for the immediate release of Convener of ‘Revolution Now’ movement and publisher of Sahara Reporters, Omoyele Sowore.

#RevolutionNow convener, Omoyele Sowore, has reportedly commenced a hunger strike in protest of his continued detention by the Department of State Services despite a court order sanctioning his immediate release.

According to Sahara Reporters, human rights lawyer, Femi Falana, who is the counsel to the defendant revealed that Sowore has refused to come down.

“He has refused to see anybody and this is in protest that his rights are being violated.

“He has not eaten because the DSS don’t feed him and he is rejecting food from the people who usually take food to him in detention.

“Yesterday, he said he didn’t want to see anyone including the people who take food to him because there is a court order asking for him to be released, the second one, so he is protesting this,” Falana said.
