Convener of the RevolutionNow, Omoyele Sowore and his co-defendant, Olawale Bakare has been allegedly rearrested barely hours after their release from detention.
The rearrest of the duo comes barely hours after men of the Department of State Service; DSS allegedly disrupted the court proceeding during the commencement of trial in a case filed by the Federal Government of Nigeria against Sowore on Friday Morning.
The duo were rearrested after several attempts by the DSS met strict resistance by journalists, and others persons in court.
Watch how Sowore was Re-arrested in the court after being released last night.
How’s Sowore a threat to national security?
Meanwhile we have a VP Osinbajo who’s a Professor of Law?

The DSS is yet to disclose the reason for the re-arrest of the duo.
Earlier outside the court premises some unclad elderly women were seen holding placards and chanting for the release of Sowore and Bakare.
