DSS promises to release Sowore to the appropriate persons

DSS had made in a statement by its Public Relations Officer PRO, Dr Peter Afunanya. The security agency says appropriate persons were yet to turn up to take his delivery adding that he would be released once the processes were concluded

and therefore unqualified; many others have either chosen to grandstand or politicise it to achieve hidden interests. The service reassures the public that it will not waste a second to release Sowore if the proper processes are followed,” he said

The DSS accused Sowore's lawyer, Femi Falana, of playing to the gallery by making claims in the media that the DSS has refused to release Sowore despite meeting his bail conditions.

“It is even more disappointing that Mr Femi Falana, who is a senior lawyer, would wrongly guide his client and supporters. He is rather playing to the gallery and mobilizing miscreants to subvert the Service and other state authorities. He has excellent relationship with the DSS. But in the circumstance, he has refused to reach out to him over the case like he had on previously related ones. For the avoidance of doubt, the Service restates its commitment to the rule of law and particularly respect to the court,” he said.

He has also denied claims that some of its officers openned fire on Deji Adeyanju and other Nigerians who staged a protest in front of its office on Tuesday November 12th to demand Sowore's release.
