DSS was not authorized to verify Sowore’s sureties – Falana

Femi Falana, the lead counsel of #RevolutionNow Convener Omoyele Sowore has once again called out the Department of State Service (DSS) over the continous detention of his client. 

 

While the Secret Police is insisting on verifying the identities of Sowore’s sureties before releasing him, Falana in a new statement stated that they were not authorized to carry out or demand such. 

 

“Pursuant to the verification of the sureties of Omoyele Sowore and Olawale Bakare  by the Federal High Court,  the trial judge, the Honourable Justice Ifeoma Ojukwu made an order on November 6, 2019  for the release of the defendants from the custody of the DSS,” Falana said in a statement.

“The Court Order has not authorised the DSS to approve the sureties before releasing Sowore and Bakare from custody.”
