DSS team leader apologised to Justice Ojukwu over court invasion —Falana

Human rights lawyer , Mr . Femi Falana ( SAN ) , on Sunday refuted the Department of State Service ’s claim that its operatives did not disrupt proceedings at the Federal High Court , Abuja , in their bid to rearrest his client , Mr . Omoyele Sowore , on Friday .
Falana said in a statement that , contrary to the DSS ’ denial , issued on Saturday , the leader of the DSS team of operatives who invaded the court tendered an apology for their conduct when summoned after the incident by the presiding judge , Justice Ijeoma Ojukwu .
He said the DSS operatives were unable to defend their conduct , hence their subsequent apology to the judge , who was forced to adjourn cases on her list following the invasion .
He described the Saturday statement issued by the agency ’s spokesperson as “self - contradictory press release ” and “an unsuccessful attempt ” to absolve itself of responsibility “for the armed invasion of the Federal High Court , Abuja Judicial Division , in general , and the desecration of Court No 7 of Hon. Justice Ijeoma Ojukwu in particular , as well as the illegal rearrest of Omoyele Sowore ”.
He stated , “ By the advantage of information technology , the whole world has placed responsibility for the gangsteric desecration of the court on the DSS .
“The DSS cannot extricate itself from the abominable acts of December 6 , 2019 .
“When I informed the court that fresh charges were being filed against our clients and that they could be rearrested , the prosecution denied any such plan .
“As soon as the case was adjourned, the DSS pounced on Sowore and caused a disruption of the proceedings of the court .
“Having taken over the court room , Justice Ojukwu hurriedly rose and asked the registrar to adjourn all other cases .
“After the learned trial judge had risen for the day , she summoned the heads of the prosecution and defence teams to her chambers .
“ When the lead prosecutor, Dr. Liman Hassan ( SAN ) , denied knowledge of the invasion of her court, she directed him to invite the head of the DSS team in the court.
“When challenged to justify the invasion of the court, the officer could not.
“He apologised to Justice Ojukwu on behalf of the DSS .
“The judge then directed the officer to withdraw the DSS operatives from the court room.
“The directive was complied with , as the operatives withdrew from the court room but rushed out to join their colleagues who had taken over the entire court house .”
He noted that the agency ’ s operatives ’ “abominable desecration ” of the court was covered live by domestic and international media and journalists, some of whom he said were victims of the operatives ’ acts of “gangsterism , barbarism and brutalisation .”
He called for the immediate release of Sowore and other political detainees as well as all criminal suspects that had been granted bail .

CaptainMeks:


Why are you deliberately being daft?

we are talking about threat to national security and what would happen when such who is a threat to national security tries resisting arrest and when lethal force comes in and you are talking about a person who is already arrested.

What part of this whole banter is muddling up your thought train kid?

I told you that rule of law does not protect such a one when as a threat to national security they try to resist arrest. Nobody would appeal to such a one to get arrested. You resist you trigger deadly force from those who came for you. Rule of law is erased at this point.

Here you are gradually trying to shift the goal post to something else. grin

Is your brain operating in reverse?

So,
the Presidency is greater than the law?
Nigeria don cast!
Irreversible damage this government is caused.
That is why the fully educated need to govern this country.
The fully educated will readily appreciate the rule of law.

Honestly, Sowore has himself to blame.
I will slap you ==> potential assault.
I will bomb you==> potential terrorism.

They are two threats with different levels of potential charges. The same goes for protest vs. Revolution.

He loaded the gun and handed it over to Buhari for the wrong choice of word no matter how noble his intentions were. It is a lesson to all. Protection of right to Freedom of speech doesn't apply when one shouts "fire!" in a crowded theater.

He is no longer Sowore the activist. He is now Sowore the disgruntled politician. It is a spinning zone. While he is spinning his stories, the government will be spinning her narratives.

You stand to suffer the so called change more than him? If he chooses, he will stay in the US comfortably with his family, when they detain him, they do so not to crush his spirit but to discourage Lily lingered fellows like you from protesting.
Re: Presidency Justifies Sowore's Rearrest, Says He's Person Of Interest To DSS by dochenaj: 10:03pm On Dec 08, 2019
This is funny. I had thought DSS had new charges against him, but rather it is the same charges for which he is still being prosecuted and for which he has obtained bail.

From what Shehu just said, even if the court acquits him of all count charges, they would still go ahead and rearrest him for the old charges and prosecute him in another court till they get a conviction.

Don't you love this #NextLevel?

oooh did you at anytime ever believe they acted on thier own of course NO, the tyrant sent them and his social media olosho came to tell us sowore staged a drama at the court....I just laugh.

Buhari should no this no tyrant ends well he should go and ask Adolf Hitler, his case may even be sooner due to pressure mounting from home and abroad.

The only thing that still defies all logic and commonsense is that Buhari still has people defending his gross failure what a shame.

When are you staging your own revolutionary movement? There is no place for lawlessness in Nigeria.

I don't understand the logic behind the comments of "he supported the change or Buhari" from many you on this issue at all. Are you guys saying that the belief that he might have supported Buhari in 2015 against Jonathan means he was supposed to get away with whatever actions he took under the administration he helped in 2015?

Conceptman:
The word revolution was used before the present government took over from GEJ and no one was brutalized nor taken to custody, the only problem they have with Sowore is because of his boldness and confidence which will attract more Nigerians to speak out against the massive failure going on presently, if truely they want the best for Nigerians let the government release Sowore and do what is right, bring electricity, reduce the price of food and commodities ,create better health and jobs then watch the masses asking for your 3rd term

Used? This went beyond the use of word, it was actually translated into action.

unbitchable:

what is this one saying?. Did the sitting judge issue a detention order or a fresh order of arrest?.
what offense has he committed within 24 hrs of his earlier release to have justified another fresh charge?. you have a brain, use it.
DSS doesn't need the Judge to order arrest before they do. It is DSS I, even police can arrest without a court warrant or warrant, which ever way.

It's like you don't know these people when they are ready to reason your matter, they already have it listed to release when required. It is a season film and episode one has just ended and it is now episode 2
