The continued detention of convener of #RevolutionNow Movement Omoyele Sowore by the Department of State Services (DSS) has erupted protest at its headquarters on Saturday.
Deji Adeyanju is currently leading the protesters in Abuja.
The protest for his release is happening, hours after the spokesman of the DSS Peter Afunanya, acknowledged that the agency had received the order to release Sowore but said the service had not released him because no one showed up on his behalf.
On Saturday morning, lawyers, supporters and family members of the activist visited the DSS headquarters but were denied access to Sowore.
Some operatives of the agency said they had not got clearance to allow Sowore leave. This infuriated some of his supporters who vowed to occupy DSS office till the activist is released.
After waiting for over three hours, some lawyers of the activist left the DSS headquarters.
