In the aftermath of the court ruling , Department of State Security (DSS) kept mute on when it would obey the ruling of the Federal High Court, Kaduna that granted leave, on Monday, to the leader of the Islamic Movement of Nigeria (IMN), Sheik Ibrahim El-Zakzaky, and his wife, Zeenat, to travel to India for medical treatment.
Meanwhile, it approached a Federal High Court in Abuja yesterday evening, requesting for an order to detain the leader of #Revolution Now, Mr. Omoyele Sowore, for 90 days to enable it conclude its investigations on the detainees.
However, the court asked the service to return tomorrow for a determination of its request.
In every attempt to contacts with the DSS , the severe agent failed to respond to enquiries on the two detainees, refusing to talk on when it would charge Sowore to court or release El-Zakzaky and Zeenat to travel abroad to look after their health.
From a reliable source ,it revealed that in the case of el-Zakzaky, adequate counter security measures were being put in place given the interest shown by the Islamic Republic of Iran in the IMN and its leader.
“The permission to travel must be adhered to especially as it concerns their security in India. They do not want to run the risk of Iranian agents snatching the suspects. I am sure they want to also work out a water tight security arrangement with the Indian government,” one of the sources said.
In the same vein , Justice Taiwo Taiwo of the Federal High Court, Abuja yesterday adjourned to tomorrow to rule on an application by the DSS, seeking an order of court to detain the Convener of #RevolutionNow protests, Sowore, for 90 days pending the conclusion of its investigation.
The DSS is seeking to prosecute him on charges bordering on incitement and treason. He was arrested on account of the #RevolutionNow protest, which he had spearheaded.
Sowore was moved to Abuja on Sunday morning and is currently being detained at a DSS facility.
