Convener of the #RevolutionNow campaign Omoyere Sowore was on Friday rearrested by the Department of State Security (DSS), at the Federal High Court, Abuja.

 

Sowore was earlier released on Thursday evening after he was arrested by the DSS on August 3, 2019 but he was rearrested after appearing in court.

 

Following his rearrest, Nigerians on Twitter have expressed their disappointment describing the event as an infringement on Sowore's human rights.

 

APC lawmaker, Akin Alabi in his reaction asked the DSS to provide an explanation for their actions.

 

 

In the same vein, some social commentators voiced their disapproval over the DSS action and lamented the absence of the rule of law in Nigeria

 

 

Socio-Economic Rights Accountability Projects (SERAP) also condemned the act.
