JUST IN: Court Refuses To Hear Sowore’s Application Challenging Detention By DSS

A Federal High Court sitting in Abuja has declined hearing the application challenging the detention of the convener of #RevolutionNow, Omoyele Sowore.

The application was filed by Human Rights lawyer, Femi Falana (SAN).

Ruling on the application on Wednesday, Justice Evelyn Maha said proceeding with the hearing of the application amounts to reviewing the order of a court of coordinate jurisdiction.

Justice Maha insisted that the matter is already before Justice Taiwo Taiwo who granted the initial exparte order empowering the department of state services to detain Mister Sowore for 45 days and subject to review.
