Moves to secure his bail today failed.

A tweet by Sowore confirms that he was denied bail on Tuesday.

His tweet read: “We just ended a weird court bail proceeding, the regime is scared and doing everything to keep us detained and hurt, but these acts won’t delay our liberation as a people, rather it will hasten it!

“A magistrate just ruled that we should be remanded in @PoliceNG instead of bail.”

He was sent to the Dice CIID facility on the grounds that he said they were denied access to food and water.

The magistrate will determine if he is granted bail on the 18th of January, 2020.
