A group of Activists and Journalists, will on Wednesday, August 14, embark on a nationwide march to protest the continued detention of the Convener of the #RevolutionNow movement, Mr. Omoyele Sowore.

Recall, that Sowore has been held by the Department of State Security Services (DSS), since Saturday, August 3, when he was arrested in a Lagos hotel.

Last Thursday, a Federal High Court in Abuja, granted an exparte order to the DSS, to hold him for a further 45 days.

Legal Luminary, Femi Falana, however filed an appeal on behalf of Sowore, on Friday.

According to the co-Convener of the movement, Deji Adeyanju, the group will march on Wednesday, to expose the antics of the President Muhammadu Buhari government to silence perceived dissenters.

Adeyanju said that Sowore’s arrest should be a source of worry to all lovers of democracy in Nigeria.

He appealed to Nigerians to come out in large numbers across the country, and join in the protest aimed at pressuring the government to release Sowore.
