Why Sowore is still in our custody ― DSS Spokesperson

• Says Service not a lawless organization, ready to release him

The Department of State Services (DSS) has confirmed the receipt of the Court Order for the release of the detained Comrade Omoyele Sowore, the Publisher of Sahara Reporters and the Candidate of the AAC in the last Presidential election but that nobody has come to pick him.

This was contained in a statement made available to news men in Abuja on late Friday night by its Spokesperson, Dr Peter Afunanya,

Dr Afunanya, however, pointed out that the Service as a law-abiding Agency had properly briefed the Court on this development and that steps were being taken to ensure compliance with the Order for accountability.

The statement reads, “the Department of State Services (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”.
