The Department of State Services has reacted to reports of the continued detention of Omoyele Sowore, publisher of Sahara Reporters, despite a court order for his release from a Federal High Court in Abuja.
The Security agency disclosed that Sowore’s legal team had yet to serve it with a copy of the court order granting him bail. Spokesperson of the DSS, Dr. Peter Afunnaya said this in a telephone interview with our correspondent, in Abuja, on Thursday.
He said the DSS is a law-abiding agency has the highest regard for the laws of the land and would not do anything to undermine law and order.
Afunanya said; “We have not received the court order. And his (Sowore’s) counsel is a very senior member of the bar and he knows the process to follow; this process has not been followed.”
