Omoyele Sowore, convener of RevolutionNow movement, has filed an application to the Federal High Court in Abuja to set aside its order permitting the Department of State Services to detain him for 45 days.

The 19-ground application was filed on Friday through his lawyer, Femi Falana(SAN), contending that the order issued by the court breached his constitutionally guaranteed fundamental rights.

According to him, the court order is “legalising the illegality” of his detention for about four days prior to the issuance of the court order on Thursday.
