DSS claims they wanted to release Sowore but no one came to receive him
The Department for State Security, DSS, has confirmed receiving the order for the release of Sahara Reporters publisher Omoyele Sowore.
The agency, however, stated that no one came to receive him which is why he wasn’t released.
DSS Public Relations officer, Peter Afunanya disclosed this in Abuja.
He said, “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”.
