DSS Denies Refusing To Release Sowore

BEVERLY HILLS, November 07, (THEWILL) – The Department of State Services (DSS) has denied reports that it has refused to comply with court order granting bail to Omoyele Sowore who is standing trial for alleged treasonable felony.

The Spokesperson of the DSS, Peter Afunaya told Channels Television that the Service was yet to be informed that Sowore had perfected his bail conditions as stipulated by the court.

However, counsel to Sowore, Femi Falana, insists that despite meeting their bail conditions, Sowore, and his co-defendant, Olawale Bakare, are still in the custody of the DSS after Justice Ijeoma Ojukwu of the Federal High Court Abuja had ordered their release on Wednesday, November 6.

He declared that lawyers from his team and court bailiffs would go to the DSS office to effect the release of his clients.

Meanwhile, the trial of Sowore and Bakare has been adjourned to December the 5th and 6th.
