Falana to DSS: Release Sowore,Bakare and Stop Exposing Nigeria to Ridicule

For three days now, Sowore and Bakare have all met bail terms as charged and fined by Justice Ijeoma Ojukwu but up till now, they are yet to gain freedom despite court orders and meeting bail terms.

Punch Newspaper reported that, Human rights lawyer, Mr. Femi Falana (SAN), on Wednesday, charged the Department of State Services to immediately release the convener of #RevolutionNow protest, Mr. Omoyele Sowore, and Olawale Bakare.

He asked the agency to stop exposing Nigeria to ridicule with its ever-changing excuses for continuing to hold on to them in violation of the Federal High Court’s order for their release.

Falana was replying the DSS’ latest statement issued by its spokesperson, Peter Ifunaya, on Wednesday, when the agency blamed the continued detention of the Sahara Reporters publisher and  Bakare on the failure of their sureties to show up to receive them from custody.
