SAN FRANCISCO, December 06, (THEWILL) – THEWILL can confirm that operatives of the Department of State Services (DSS) have re-arrested the convener of #RevolutionNow, Omoyele Sowore, and his co-defendant Olawale Bakare on fresh charges.

He is currently being detained at the DSS office in Abuja.

Sowore was re-arrested following an earlier attempt by DSS operatives to arrest him inside the courtroom of a Federal High Court in Abuja.

His re-arrest 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 and ordered their release within 24 hours.
