The Department of State Services, DSS says the circulation of a video on an attempt to re-arrest the convener of the RevolutionNow movement, OMOYELE SOWORE in the courtroom was mischief.

Public Relations’ Officer of DSS, PETER AFUNANYA in a statement said the video was meant to serve as propaganda to bring the service to disrepute.

He said the statement was in response to the serial misinformation being circulated in the media on the involvement of the service in the incident that occurred at the Federal High Court.

AFUNANYA stated Senior Advocate of Nigeria, FEMI FALANA who is Counsel to SOWORE had during the court proceeding informed the judge that he was suspicious of a move by the service to re-arrest his client.

He added the court discountenanced the suspicion, noting that the service was law-abiding and would not engage in the act, adding that when SOWORE stepped out of the court and sighted operatives of the service within the premises, he ran back into the courtroom.

The DSS said it holds the judiciary in utmost respect and would continue to work with it for national peace and public safety.
