Nigerians have taken to social media to lament about the rearrest of the publisher of SaharaReporters, Omoyele Sowore shortly after appearing in court.

Sowore and Bakare were granted bail by the court on two occasions but were only briefly released — Only to be rearrested by the DSS who had initially refused to comply with the order of the court, barely 24 hours after.

The DSS operatives were also said to have chased away the presiding judge, Justice Ijeoma Ojukwu out of the courtroom while also a journalist with a popular television station was allegedly brutalised.
