The Federal High Court in Abuja has refused to grant the motion filed by the convener of #RevolutionNow protests, Omoyele Sowore, challenging his detention for 45 days by the Department of State Security (DSS).
Justice Nkeonye Maya denied all the applications on Wednesday and sent the case back to Justice Taiwo for further hearing.
Human rights lawyer, Femi Falana, filed the applications on behalf of his client, Mr Sowore.
Falana, who had asked the court to set aside the ex-parte order granted by Justice Taiwo, also applied for bail orally when Justice Maha rejected the earlier application.
Sowore has been in the custody of the DSS since August 2.
Justice Taiwo had on August 8 ordered his detention for 45 days at the instance of the DSS to enable the secret police carry out and conclude its investigation on allegations levied against him.
