A Federal High Court sitting in Abuja, on Wednesday, refused to grant the motion filed by, Omoyele Sowore, convener of RevolutionNow protests, challenging his detention for 45 days by the State of State Security, SSS.

Justice Nkeonye Maya, who declined all applications by counsel to Mr Sowore, Femi Falana, SAN, sent the case back to Justice Taiwo Taiwo for further hearing.

Mr Falana, who had asked the court to set aside the exparte order granted by Justice Taiwo, also applied for oral bail when Justice Maha rejected the earlier application.

Mr Sowore who is presently in detention had, on August 9, approached the court, seeking an order to vacate the ex parte order that gave the DSS the legal backing to detain him for 45 days.

Recall that Justice Taiwo Taiwo had, in a ruling on August 8 in an exparte application, ordered Sowore’s detention for the said period to enable the DSS carry out and conclude its investigation on allegations levelled against him.
