Mr Femi Falana (SAN), a Human rights lawyer, has shown concern in the continuous detention of Omoyele Sowore and expressed displeasure that the #RevolutionNow protests orchestrator, Omoyele Sowore, is yet to be arraigned.

During the August 5th protest parade, some people were arrested by the president Muhammad Buhari security while peacefully protesting and were arraigned on Tuesday at the Lagos court.

Falana said, “he expected Sowore to have been arraigned on Monday because, by law, a suspect should not be kept in detention without arraignment within 48 hours of arrest.”

“I have sent lawyers to the DSS as of Tuesday morning, and I’m awaiting feedback.”
