DSS Releases Sowore

The Department of States Services (DSS), has released Omoyele Sowore, convener of #Revolution Now Movement.

This comes hours after the federal government ordered the DSS to release the activist, as well as former National Security Adviser (NSA), Colonel Sambo Dasuki (rtd).
Abubakar Malami, the Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, had in a statement on Tuesday, directed the security agency to release the Sahara Reporters’ publisher and Dasuki.
Malami said his directive followed the decision by President Muhammadu Buhari to comply with the court orders, granting bail to the two defendants.
Sowore was violently rearrested at the Federal High Court in Abuja by the operatives of the DSS on December 6, barely 24 hours after he was released from detention that lasted over four months.
Sowore was seen being greeted by journalists in a video circulating on social media, while driving away from DSS’ headquarters in a red Toyota Camry in Abuja at about 6.20pm.
However, it could not be ascertained yet if Dasuki, who had been detained by the agency since December 2015 was also released.
