The Department for State Security, DSS, has revealed why Sahara Reporters publisher, Omoyele Sowore, is still in their custody despite meeting his bail condition.
Sowore was granted bail by a Federal High Court in Abuja on Tuesday, the 23rd of September, 2019.
However, he remains in the custody of the DSS despite his lawyer, Femi Falana, appearing at their headquarters to bail him yesterday.
Spekaing on why Sowore is yet to be released, spokesperson of the DSS, Dr. Peter Afunnaya, said the order by the Federal High Court to bail him has not been received by the agency.
“We have not received the court order. And his (Sowore’s) counsel is a very senior member of the bar and he knows the process to follow; this process has not been followed” Afunnaya said.
