RevolutionNow protest convener Omoyele Sowore and his co-accused, Olawale Bakare, are finally released from the DSS detention in Abuja  around 7 pm Thursday .

They were released to their lead counsel and Senior Advocate of Nigeria Femi Falana who confirmed it to the National Daily.

Justice Ijeoma Ojukwu of an Abuja Federal High Court earlier ordered the DSS to release the two within 24 hours.
