The Department of State Services (DSS) on Tuesday insisted that Omoyele Sowore, the convener of the planned RevolutionNow protest would only be released upon proper documentation of persons willing to bail him.
Dr Peter Afunanya, the Public Relations Officer of the Service disclosed this at a media conference in Abuja.
He said the service was prepared to release Sowore in line with the bail granted him by the court but waiting for persons to take his delivery through proper documentation.
According to him, Sowore was granted bail by the court and the service has received the order, but people who should take his delivery through proper documentation have not come.
He said claims by some individuals that they were at DSS to take Sowore’s delivery without seeing officials of the service was not true. Dr Afunanya concluded by saying that the service cannot afford to release Sowore to Miscreants, protesters, and other persons who are not qualified to stand as Sowore’s sureties.
