Operatives of the State Security Service (DSS) have re-arrested the
Convener of #Revolution Now, Omoyele Sowore and his co-accused, Olawale Bakare.
They were whisked away by the operatives after a stand-off that lasted almost two hours on Friday at the Federal High Court in Abuja on Friday on account of fresh charges.
Supporters of the duo had resisted attempts by men of the DSS to arrest them in the court.
After waiting in the court for about two hours after the attempt their lawyer, Femi Falana, who had denied knowledge of such fresh charges, led them downstairs where armed DSS personel were waiting.
Falana told them they could not arrest within the premises of the court.
They moved towards the gate the court, and after some arguments, Sowore and Bakare were eventually taken to the DSS facility in Falana’s car driven by a DSS personnel and escorted by several other DSS trucks.
