1 min read

The Department of State Services has bowed to the pressures from many Nigerians by releasing Nigerian activist, Olawale Bakare popularly known as Mandate.

Bakare was arrested in Osogbo, Osun State, on Wednesday for participating in the RevolutionNow protest that saw dozens of citizens taking to the streets in different parts of the country to demand better governance from the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari.

During the maiden edition of the protest on August 5, 2019, he was also arrested by the DSS and kept in unlawful detention until December when he was released on bail.

He is standing trial alongside renowned rights crusader, Omoyele Sowore, for pushing Nigerians to demand improved welfare, security among others from the Buhari government.
