Femi Falana stated that the Department of State Services insistence on releasing Sowore to sureties is against the ruling of the court.
Falana explained that “pursuant to the verification of the sureties of Sowore and Bakare by the Federal High Court, the trial judge, the Honourable Justice Ifeoma Ojukwu, made an order on November 6, 2019, for the release of the defendants from the custody of the DSS.
“The Court Order has not authorised the DSS to approve the sureties before releasing Sowore and Bakare from custody,” Falana said.
