BREAKING: DSS Turns Back Bailiff, Sowore's Lawyer After Perfection Of Bail, Says We Close At 3:30pm

Lawyers to pro-democracy activist and Publisher of Sahara Reporters, Omoyele Sowore, were unable to secure his release from the Department of State Services on Wednesday despite perfecting his bail condition and securing a court order to that effect.

Justice Ijeoma Ojukwu of the Federal High Court, Abuja, had issued an order directing the DSS to immediately release Sowore, and Olawale Bakare widely known as Mandate, after the two of them perfected their bail conditions.

However, upon arriving at the DSS facility around 4:30pm, the court’s bailiff alongside Sowore’s lawyers were turned back by the secret police, which claimed they had closed for the day since 3:30pm – one hour before the court official and lawyers arrived.

The agency said it could therefore no longer process the order for the day.
