Operatives of the Department of State Services have arrested  activist and the convener of #RevolutionNow Protests, slated for Monday the 5th of August, Omoyele Sowore.


It was learnt that Sowore was picked up at his apartment in the early hours of Saturday.



Sowore had twitted a distress tweet at exactly 1:25 am with an eyewitness confirming that his phone was forcefully taken from him.



He also tweeted  ” Ja p”,  confirming his phone must have been seized while trying to raise the alarm about his arrest.



His arrest and detention may not be unconnected to #RevolutionNow, a series of planned protests against bad governance in Nigeria  scheduled for August 5, 2019.
