The African Action Alliance (AAC) has expelled its National Chairman, Mr. Omoyele Sowore and 28 other national officers from the party.
The party took the decision at its National Convention currently going on at Rockview Hotel, Owerri. Dr. Leonard Nzenwa has been elected as new National Chairman.
Recall that a Federal High Court in Abuja on Thursday approved the request of the Department of State Services (DSS) to detain Sowore for 45 days over his involvement in the the convening of #RevolutionNow protest.
Exhibits tendered by the DSS to secure the order include: Digital video display of a conference between Sowore and one Nnamdi Kanu; and a digital video display of comments made by Sowore in paragraph 4 of the affidavit that members of proscribed IMN were going to join forces with him to bring down the government.
Sowore, who is the publisher of Sahara Reporters was the presidential candidate of the African Action Congress (AAC) in the 2019 general elections. He was arrested in the early hours of last Saturday, two days to the commencement of the protests.
