Nicholas Tofowomo, the senator representing Ondo South senatorial district has condemned the re-arrest of by operatives of the Department of State Service (DSS) and asked them to release him.

According to reports, the senator had said this in a statement made available by his special assistant, media and publicity, Akinrinlola Olumide, on Saturday, December 7.

He refers to the maltreatment and forceful arrest of Sowore as a gross transgression on constitutionalism.

I advise men of the to act professionally within the confine of the law. They should allow the court to try Sowore and his co-defendant over allegations they leveled against them.

“The should be more interested in proving the allegations they leveled against both of them. Whatever fresh charges could have been included through a mere application for amendment of their charge sheet before the court.

“Sowore is my constituent and as much as I know, he is not a terrorist and does not have any criminal record in the past. The invasion of the courtroom to rearrest him was unnecessary.

“I, therefore, call on the DSS, to as a matter of urgency, release Sowore immediately,”
