It is no longer news that Sahara Reporters publisher and who doubles as the Convener of the #RevolutionNow movement, Omoyele Sowore, has been arrested few hours after he was released in bail.
Sowore has raised the alarm that the Department of State Service (DSS) had threatened to kill him after his release on Thursday, December 5.
Justice Ijeoma Ojukwu of the Federal High Court in Abuja mandated the release of Sowore and his co-defendant, Olawale Bakare, ahead of the scheduled commencement of the defendants’ trial on charges of treasonable felony.
The drama in court started when operatives of DSS tried to re arrest the duo at the court. Sowore revealed during a press briefing that the DSS had allegedly told him that he would not walk out of their detention alive.
“It might be my only word on the record before they kill me; this is an attempt to assassinate me in court. They came with guns and they tried to shoot; they dragged me down in front of a judge after I have been granted bail. I said that these are a bunch of lawless people; they were reluctant to respect the order of the court. Now they have shown it to the whole world.
“They tried to break me in prison, sent delegations to me, offering all kinds of things. I refused and they promised that I will not walk out of their detention alive; that is what they have come to implement today.”
However, the DSS is yet to deny or counter the allegations made by Sowore.
The #RevolutionNow convener urged Nigerians not to be afraid, some people have to make the sacrifice for the country to work
