- Omoyele Sowore has been reportedly rearrested by the DSS
- The activist-turned politician was released on Thursday, December 5, by the DSS
- Sowore was said to have been rearrested on Friday, December 6, when he appeared before the Federal High Court, Abuja
A report by Daily Trust indicated that the activist-turned politician, Omoyele Sowore, has been rearrested by the operatives of the Department of State Services (DSS) at the Federal High Court, Abuja, on Friday, December 6.
Legit.ng had earlier reported that the court was thrown into confusion as the DSS allegedly attempts to re-arrest Sowore immediately after the end of the proceedings.
Sowore, who was released after 124 days in DSS detention on the evening of Thursday, December 5, was back in court on the morning of Friday, December 6, for the commencement of his trial on the charge of treasonable felony.
The court, presided over by Justice Ojukwu had adjourned the matter to February 11, for the commencement of trial based on the consensus of both counsel.
However, just as Sowore was making his way out of the court, DSS operatives made attempts to whisk him and his co-defendants, Olawale Bakare, away.
According to the report, Femi Falana (SAN), the counsel to Sowore, and the prosecution counsel, Hassan Liman (SAN) were seen approaching the judge’s chamber.
Falana had informed the court earlier that there were plans to file a fresh charge against Sowore, an allegation Liman said he knew nothing about.
