The Department of State Services has confirmed it has received the court order for the release of the convener of #RevolutionNow, Omoyele Sowore.

Spokesman of the DSS confirmed the receiving the court order in a statement on Friday, however, he stated that no person has turned up at the DSS to take delivery of him, TheCable reports.

“The DSS wishes to confirm that it has received the court order for the release of Omoyele Sowore,” the statement read.

“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.”

Recall that a Federal High Court in Abuja granted Sowore bail but after fulfilling the conditions of the bail, the DSS did not allow him leave its custody.
