Sowore who was arrested in Lagos on 3rd, Aug and later flown to Abuja where he has been detained, while the  federal high court in Abuja had granted him bail and after meeting his bail condition, the secret police still did not let him leave its custody. 

In a statement on Friday, November 8th Peter Afunanya, spokesman of the DSS, said while they have received the order, that no one has come the to take delivery on the activist.

“The DSS wishes to confirm that it has received the court order for the release of Omoyele Sowore. It is important that the public notes that since the receipt of the Order, no person has turned up at the DSS to take delivery of him. This becomes imperative for reasons of accountability. 

“However, the Court has been properly briefed on this development and the steps being taken to ensure compliance with its Order. 

“The Service, under the leadership of Yusuf Magaji Bichi (fwc), as the Director General, is not a lawless organization and will never obstruct justice or disobey Court Orders. It, therefore, affirms that it will do all that is needful once the appropriate processes have been concluded” the statement read.
