The Department of State Service (DSS) has twice on Friday blocked a bailiff of the Federal High Court in Abuja from effecting a fresh service of the court order for the release of the convener of #RevolutionNow protest Omowole Sowore.
It was learnt that the bailiff first arrived the DSS headquarters in Abuja, where he (Sowore) had been held since August 3, 2019, around 9.30 a.m. on Friday, but was asked to return by 12 noon when the Director-General of DSS, Yusuf Bichi, would be around.
But it was learnt that the bailiff returned to the DSS headquarters at 12.14 p.m. on Friday, but was denied access.
It would be recalled that Justice Taiwo had on Tuesday ordered the release of Sowore, from the custody of the DSS pending his arraignment in court.
The judge ordered him to submit his passport in the court’s registry as the sole condition for the bail.
Sowore’s lawyers have said that the terms of his bail have since been fulfiled, however, he has yet to be released.
