Sowore Escapes Rearrest

Omoyele Sowore is in fresh trouble. Operatives of the Department of State Services (DSS) on Friday, December 6th, 2019 attempted to rearrest him at the Federal High Court, Abuja.

At the time of the attempt to rearrest him, police, journalists and others present in court threw themselves on Sowore, thereby preventing the heavily armed security personnel from arresting him.

In a video available to us, Sowore was seen on the ground inside the courtroom saying; “They have surrounded the place. We will sleep here today.”

This is coming less than a day after he was released by the DSS after an Abuja Federal High Court ordered for his release within 24 hours.

Justice Ijeoma Ojukwu also ordered the DSS to pay the sum of N100,000 to Sowore, for refusing to release him on bail despite two court orders to that effect.

The judge consequently adjourned the trial of the case brought against them by the Nigerian Government until December 6 for continuation.
