Sowore to be released from DSS today

Justice Ojukwu granted Omoyele Sowore bail for the order in a ruling on the application for a bail variation by the duo charged with treasonable felony among others.

Judge Ojukwu, once adjourned Sowore’s case to 6 and 7 November for the commencement of trial.

Earlier today the Human rights lawyer, Mr. Femi Falana (SAN), told the Federal High Court in Abuja that the defendants would be freed later on Wednesday, 6th November 2019.

Falana said, “I have already explained to the learned prosecuting counsel that we are encumbered by the refusal of the State Security Service to allow us to prepare for the defense of the defendants.

I had already asked my learned counsel for the prosecution, that we are confident that the defendants will be freed today (Wednesday) from the custody of the SSS having met the bail conditions imposed on them by this honourable court. Once they are liberated from the custody of the SSS, we will be in a position to take full instruction from them.”
