Spokes Person for the Department of Secret Service DSS has once again come out to reiterate why Sowore must be handed over to his Lawyer as one of the basic conditions the DSS would release Sowore after a court order had asked the DSS to do so long ago.
Peter Afunanya, Spokes person for the DSS made this disclosure in abuja on Teusday that Sowore's Lawyer Femi Falana (SAN) was yet to come get Sowore out of their facility.
Afunanya said, "We can not just release Sowore and ask him to go because he may be knocked down by a vehicle at the gate."
From what journalist were able to put together, it seems the DSS Is bent on Femi Falana coming to collect Sowore which has not happened as at press times.
Afunanya said the DSS was following proper administrative procedures by asking the sureties to come forward for proper documentation, saying "We respect rules and orders of the court and there was never a time the Director-General said he would not release Sowore."
Reacting to this development was Sowore's Lawyer Femi Falana who said Yusuf Bichi, director-general of Department of State Service stopped taking his calls.
"I confirm that I have an official relationship with the DG of SSS. But since the commencement of the case of Sowore and Bakare the DG has refused to pick my calls while I have since become a persona non grata in the office of the SSS," Falana Stated.
Recall that Sowore was arrested on August 3, 2019 for calling on Nigerians to take the streets in demonstration for a #RevolutionNow protest.
