Seven arrested #Revolutionnow movement members in Osun state may be detained for another 14 days following a detention order obtained by the Department of State Services that arrested them.
Counsel to the protesters, Mr. Alfred Adegoke, has recealed to The PUNCH that the seven of them were being held by the DSS.
However, Adegoke said despite the detention order, application for bail could still be entertained.
According to Adegoke, “The DSS got ex parte order to detain them (the protesters) for 14 days pending the conclusion of investigation. A lawyer I sent their earlier brought back that report. The lawyer spoke with the Director and they said he should talk to the Legal Officer.
They said despite the detention order they got, application for bail can still be made. They asked him to come back tomorrow (Thursday).” the lawyer said.
