The Department of State Services says it has “received the court order” asking it to release the convener of #RevolutionNow, Mr. Omoyele Sowore.
It, however, said that “no person has turned up at the DSS to take delivery of him.”
Online platform TheCable, reports that the news was contained in a Press release signed by DSS spokesman, Peter Afunanya.
Sowore was arrested in Lagos on August 3 and later flown to Abuja where he is being detained.
The statement reads in part: “The DSS wishes to confirm that it has received the court order for the release of Omoyele Sowore,” the statement read.
“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.”
