We Want Full Investigation into DSS invasion of Court – BoSAN

The Body of Senior Advocates of Nigeria (BoSAN) on Thursday said only a Judicial Commission of Enquiry set up by President Muhammadu Buhari can reveal the real identities of those who invaded a courtroom of the Federal High Court, Abuja last Friday.

Courtroom number 7, presided over by Justice Ijeoma Ojukwu trying the convener of #RevolutionNow protest, Omoyele Sowore, over alleged treasonable felony charge was allegedly invaded by operatives of the Department of State Services (DSS) in their bid to rearrest Sowore, less than 12 hours after his release from detention.

The invasion since last Friday has received strong condemnation from both within and outside the country.

Although the security agency has continued to distance itself from the incidence, accusing Sowore and his supporters of staging the act, however, lead lawyer to Sowore, Mr. Femi Falana (SAN), and others maintained that evidence abound as to claims that the DSS actually carried out the act.

Just on Wednesday, the Attorney General of the Federation (AGF) and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami (SAN), disclosed that the federal government has put machinery in place to prove the culpability or otherwise of the security operatives.
