Human Rights Activist and Senior Advocate of Nigeria, SAN, Mr. Femi Falana, on Friday, filed a motion to challenge the legality of the order of the Federal High Court in Abuja that gave the Department of State Service, DSS, permission to detain the convener of the RevolutionNow protest, Omoyele Sowore, for 45 days.
Justice Taiwo Taiwo had held that DSS which earlier requested for 90 days, was at liberty to return for an extension of the detention order after September 21.
But Falana contended that the order which the vacation judge granted on the strength of an exparte application that was brought by the DSS, was illegal and unconstitutional.
The senior lawyer maintained that the detention order breached the fundamental right provisions of the 1999 Constitution, as amended.
