The Department of State Services has said the publisher of Sahara Reporters, Omoyele Sowore, was still in custody because his legal team had yet to serve it with a copy of the court order granting him bail.
Spokesperson of the DSS, Dr. Peter Afunnaya said this in a telephone interview with our correspondent, in Abuja, on Thursday.
He said the DSS as a law-abiding agency has the highest regard for the laws of the land and would not do anything to undermine law and order.
Afunnaya said, “We have not received the court order. And his (Sowore’s) counsel is a very senior member of the bar and he knows the process to follow; this process has not been followed.”
