Human rights activist, Deji Adeyanju has volunteered to pick up Omoyele Sowore from the Department of State Services, DSS.
The Department of State Services, DSS on Friday confirmed receipt of the court order for the release of Omoyele Sowore.
But DSS affirmed that nobody has come to take Sowore on bail.
DSS Public Relations officer, Peter Afunanya, in a statement in Abuja said, “It is important that the public notes that since the receipt of the order, no person has turned up at the DSS to take delivery of him. This becomes imperative for reasons of accountability.
“However, the Court has been properly briefed on this development and the steps being taken to ensure compliance with its order.
“The Service, under the leadership of Yusuf Magaji Bichi (fwc), as the Director General, is not a lawless organization and will never obstruct justice or disobey Court orders. It, therefore, affirms that it will do all that is needful once the appropriate processes have been concluded”.
However, Adeyanju has volunteered to take Sowore.
Adeyanju in a post on his Twitter page announced that he would be at the DSS headquarters at 10am to pick Sowore.
Adeyanju wrote: “The DSS in a press release just said they have not released Sowore because nobody has come forward to receive him.
“I, Comrade Deji Adeyanju, hereby volunteer to take Sowore. I will be at the DSS headquarters in the morning by 10am.”
