The Department of State Security Service (DSS) on Sunday August 4, confirmed the arrest of the former Presidential candidate of the African Action Congress (AAC) Omoyele Sowore.

The DSS’s spokesperson Peter Afunaya, confirmed this at a press briefing on Sunday in Abuja. Mr Afunaya however declined commenting on whether Mr Sowore is at their office in Lagos or Abuja, but he claimed that the DSS is acting within its constitutional powers to arrest and detain anybody or group who threatens the unity and peaceful co-existence of Nigeria.

He further alleged that the call for revolution was deemed as a national security threat.
