The Department of State Services (DSS) said it can’t release they convener of RevolutionNow Movement, Omoyele Sowore, from its detention facility because he may be knocked down by a vehicle on his way out.

DSS spokesperson, Peter Afunanya made the disclosure while addressing journalists in Abuja on Tuesday, November 19, 2019.

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

Afunanya noted that Sowore’s lawyer, Femi Falana, has not come to the headquarters of the service to fetch the activist since he was granted bail by a Federal High Court in Abuja.

He maintained that the DSS was following administrative procedures by insisting that Sowore’s sureties come forward for proper documentation.

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.

Sowore was arrested at about 11 pm on August 2 by DSS operatives and has since been in detention alongside Bakare.

The Federal Government had, in September, filed a seven-count charge against Sowore that included treasonable felony, insulting the president, and money laundering.

In October, Justice Ojukwu granted bail to the defendants, demanding bail bonds of N100 million and N50 million respectively from Sowore and Bakare.
