#RevolutionNow Convener and human rights activist, Mr. Omoyele Sowore, has been released by the Department Of State Services on Thursday, alongside his co-detainee, Adebayo Bakare.

They were freed hours after Justice Ijeoma Ojukwu of the Federal High Court in Abuja had given the DSS 24-hour ultimatum to release the two men.

Their lead defence counsel, Mr. Femi Falana (SAN), confirmed the development to Punch

“They were released about 30 minutes ago. They were released to one of our lawyers.

“The DSS paid the sum of N100,000 awarded against it by Justice Ojukwu for making the court to adjourn till Friday for frivolous reasons on Thursday,” Falana said
