Sowore May Be Knocked Down By Vehicle If Released By Us, DSS Claims by whizpet: 1:45pm On Nov 19
In yet another ridiculous twist, the Department of State Services on Tuesday said that it was yet to release pro-democracy campaigner and Publisher of Sahara Reporters, Omoyele Sowore, from its detention facility in Abuja because it doesn't want him to get knocked down by a vehicle on his way out.

Spokesperson for the agency, Peter Afunanya, also told journalists in Abuja on Tuesday that Sowore's lawyer, Femi Falana (SAN), was yet to come fetch him from their facility.

Afunanya said, "We cannot just release Sowore and ask him to go because he may be knocked down by a vehicle at the gate."

Afunanya noted that Falana had not been to the headquarters of the service since the activist was granted bail, a claim the popular rights lawyer vehemently rejects.

Afunanya claimed that the DSS was following administrative procedures by asking the sureties to come forward for proper documentation.

He said, "We respect rules and orders of the court and there was never a time the Director-General said he would not release Sowore."

The secret police continues to hold on to Sowore despite two court orders directing it to release him after meeting bail conditions on both occasions.

Femi Falana, senior advocate of Nigeria (SAN), says Yusuf Bichi, director-general of the Department of State Services (DSS), has stopped taking his calls.

“I confirm that I have an official relationship with the DG of SSS. But since the commencement of the case of Sowore and Bakare the DG has refused to pick my calls while I have since become a persona non grata in the office of the SSS,” Falana said.

Sowore was arrested in Lagos on August 3, 2019 for calling on Nigerians to take to the streets in peaceful demonstrations to demand a better country from President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration.

Like play, like play Sowore will spend 4 years in jail. I guess he never saw it coming. He thought that he be arrested and made to look like a hero fighting for Nigerians and after the people go out to riot for him, Buhari will succumb to pressure and release him thereby making him have mass appeal as he positions for 2023 presidency. In his fantasy, he forgot that here is a jungle. Nobody cares about his ugly ass. More important persons like Dasuki have been in jail for over 4 years and even America don't have the guts to ask Buhari why grin

It's sad enough that our agencies don't give a hoot about the rule of law, we're -in the most unimaginable way possible, used to it.

But please, I think it's most insulting that they toy with our intelligence so brazenly
