A former presidential candidate in the 2019 elections, Mr Omoyele Sowore, has been reportedly arrested by security agents in Lagos.

He was reportedly arrested by men believed to be operatives of the Department of State Services (DSS).

However, the security outfit has yet to confirm the arrest.

He made his arrest known via his verified Twitter handle at about 1:25 am.

A minute after, the former presidential candidate tweeted “Ja p” which, according to his news platform, confirms his phone must have been seized while trying to raise the alarm about his arrest.

The news website added that its publisher’s arrest was not unconnected to #RevolutionNow, a series of planned protests against bad governance in the country scheduled for August 5, 2019.

Mr Sowore contested the presidential election on the platform of the African Action Congress (AAC).
