BREAKING: Buhari In Trouble, As Sowore Set To Die In DSS Custody, Goes On Hunger Strike Till Further Notice

Pro-Democracy Activist, Omoyele Sowore, has protested, by refusing to eat any food, over his continued detention by the Department of State Security Services, DSS, despite a court order sanctioning his immediate release.
Sowore, who has been detained for 98 days by the DSS, was granted bail twice by the Federal High Court, in Abuja. 
Human Rights Lawyer, Femi Falana, who is defending Sowore in court, on Friday said:

“Since yesterday (Thursday), he has refused to come down. He has refused to see anybody, and this is in protest that his rights are being violated.

“He has not eaten, because the DSS do not feed him, and he is rejecting food from the people who usually take food to him in detention. 

“Yesterday, he said he did not want to see anyone, including the people who take food to him, because there is a court order asking for him to be released, the second one, so he is protesting this.”
