Nobody has turned up for Sowore’s release — DSS

The Department of State Services (DSS) has confirmed that it has received the court order to release convener of the Revolution Now movement, Omoyele Sowore.

Peter Afunanya, spokesman of the DSS, in a statement on Friday, said despite receiving the court order no one turned up to collect Sowore.

The statements read:

“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.”

Sowore has met his bail conditions for two days but he is yet to be released by the DSS.
