The Department of State Services (DSS) is yet to release Omoyele Sowore, despite meeting his bail conditions.
This is according to a member of Sowore’s legal team, Marshal Abubakar, who led a team of family members to the Headquarters of the Service to receive the convener of #RevolutionNow protest.
Abubakar said after putting calls across to some high-ranking DSS officials, they were told to wait as the persons who could authorise Sowore’s release were unavailable. He said:
“We are asking the DSS to please, in the interest of justice and rule of law, release Mr Omoyele Sowore, to us to go with him.
“We have been here for the past two hours and we are demanding that Mr Sowore be released to the lawyers and his family, in line with the orders of the court.
“They have acknowledged the fact that they have received the said court orders; they have also acknowledged the fact that we have been here on two, three occasions.
“We have called all the authorities who we’ve been assessing over the years at the DSS and they told us to wait that they are going to comply. We are waiting for compliance with the court orders”.
This comes barely a day after the DSS said it has received a court order to release Sowore, but nobody has turned up at the Service’s office to take delivery of him.
