The Department of State Services (DSS) has released Omoyele, convener of RevolutionNow Movement.
DSS source disclosed this to TheCable on Thursday night.
Marshall Abubakar, one of the lawyers of Sowore, also confirmed this to TheCable.
Sowore has been in the custody of the secret police since his arrest on August 3.
He was arrested for calling for nationwide protests, tagged RevolutionNow, against the President Muhammadu Buhari-led government.
The DSS accused the Sahara Reporters founder of plotting with foreign interests to overthrow the Buhari government that was re-elected in February.
Despite court orders to release Sowore, the DSS has failed to obey, offering up many frivolous excuses.
