We’ve Received The Order To Release Sowore – DSS

The Department of State Services (DSS) has confirmed receiving the
court order on the release of Omoyele Sowore, convener of the Revolution
Now movement.  

Sowore was arrested in Lagos on August 3rd and later flown to Abuja
where he is being detained. A federal high court in Abuja had granted
him bail but after fulfilling the conditions of the bail, the secret
police did not allow him leave its custody.

In a statement on Friday, November 8th Peter Afunanya, spokesman of
the DSS, said while the agency has received the order, no one has
visited the DSS to take delivery on the activist.

“The DSS wishes to confirm that it has received the court order for
the release of Omoyele Sowore. It is important that the public notes
that since the receipt of the Order, no person has turned up at the DSS
to take delivery of him. This becomes imperative for reasons of
accountability.  

“However, the Court has been properly briefed on this development and
the steps being taken to ensure compliance with its Order.  

“The Service, under the leadership of Yusuf Magaji Bichi (fwc), as
the Director General, is not a lawless organization and will never
obstruct justice or disobey Court Orders. It, therefore, affirms that it
will do all that is needful once the appropriate processes have been
concluded” the statement read.
