A Federal High Court sitting in Abuja, on Thursday, ordered the release of Omoyele Sowore from the Department of State Security Service (DSS) within 24 hours.

The Publisher of Sahara Reporters was arrested on August 3 by the security operatives over allegations of treason and organizing #RevolutionNow protest, among other offences.

After spending a few months in detention, the court ordered the release of the former presidential candidate, but he was not granted bail by DSS.

The court, according to reports, further ordered the DSS to pay the sum of N100, 000 to Sowore for their refusal to release him on bail.
