Omoyele Sowore, the co-convener of #RevolutionNow movement, after being detained for over 45 days in the custody of Department State Security Service (DSS), on Monday revealed how he was maltreated by the security operatives.

“I was abducted in the middle of the night. I was taken to one of your facilities in Lagos," he narrated.

"I was beaten up, rough-handled on my way to the facility in the car.

“My cousin, who was in the room with me, was also beaten and handcuffed, and my properties were forcefully seized.

“And when I got there, of course, the maltreatment continued, they threw me on a cold floor and locked the door.

Sowore, during the interrogation session, posited further that he had no contact with even the guards for two nights.

“I was in that facility before I was flown here by your agents. So, I was seriously maltreated,” he stated.

Asked if he had spoken with his family since the arrest, he said: “No, I’ve not made any call to my family members, I only made calls to people I remember their numbers to bring me food and asked them to call my brother."
