The release of Sowore comes, few hours after the Federal High Court, Abuja, on Thursday, ordered the Department of State Services (DSS) to release Omoyele Sowore, Convener, #RevolutionNow Protest, within 24 hours.
Justice Ijeoma Ojukwu, who gave the order, also awarded a N100, 000 fine against the DSS over its delay to serve the defence counsel with the additional proof of evidence in the ongoing trial of Sowore and Olawale Bakare.
The judge, who was visibly angry over the development which has caused the court to adjourn the trial at the instance of the DSS, said the fine must be paid to the defendants before the next adjourned date, which is tomorrow.
A group of women on Thursday protested in front of the Federal High Court in Abuja to demand the immediate release of Omoyele Sowore and Olawale Bakare.
To drive home their demand, the elderly women removed their blouses, revealing only their bras.

According to the women, Sowore their son, had not committed any crime therefore President Muhammadu Buhari should order his immediate and unconditional release from the detention of Department of State Services.
