The convener of #RevolutionNow protest , Omoyele Sowore, has gone on hunger strike in protest of his continued detention by the Department of State Services (DSS), despite the court granting him bail.
Sowore, who has been in DSS custody for 98 days was granted bail by a Federal High Court in Abuja on October 21 for the second time but was able to perfcet his bail conditions on Wednesday.
Human rights lawyer, who is also Sowore’a counsel , Femi Falana, on Friday told SaharaReporters, “Since yesterday (Thursday) he has refused to come down. He has refused to see anybody and this is in protest that his rights are being violated.
“He has not eaten because the DSS don’t feed him and he is rejecting food from the people who usually take food to him in detention.
“Yesterday, he said he didn’t want to see anyone including the people who took food to him because there is a court order asking for him to be released, the second one, so he is protesting this.”
