Sowore Sues DSS, Demands N500m

Omoyele Sowore, convener of the #RevolutionNow protest, has sued the Department of State Service (DSS) for his illegal detention despite two court orders to free him.

Sowore is asking the court to order the DSS to pay him N500m as general and aggravated damages for his detention and illegal violation of fundamental rights.

The activist made the demand in a suit marked FHC/ABJ /C51409/2019 dated November 20, 2019, in Abuja on Friday.

The suit was supported by a 21-paragraph affidavit deposed to by Abubakar Marshall and accompanied by a written address.

Abubakar Malami, the Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, is joined in the suit.

Sowore was arrested in Lagos on August 3, 2019 for calling on Nigerians to take to the streets in peaceful demonstrations to demand a better country from the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari.

The government has accused him of insulting President Buhari and planning to bring down his government – charges observers around the world including leading legal practitioners describe as frivolous and laughable.
