The Department of State services (DSS) has attempted to rearrest Omoyele Sowore at the federal high court in Abuja.

On Thursday, the court ordered the DSS to release Sowore within 24 hours. He was later released in the evening of the same day.

But on Friday, DSS agents pulled their guns in a show of force causing confusion in the court premises and made an attempt to arrest the activist.

The DSS operatives also chased away the presiding judge, Justice Ijeoma Ojukwu while also brutalising a journalist with a popular television station.


However, at the time of the attempt to re-arrest him, police, journalists and others present in court threw themselves on Sowore, thereby preventing the heavily armed security personnel from picking him up.


“Sowore could be seen on the floor inside the courtroom saying, “They have surrounded the place. We will sleep here today.”

There is currently an ongoing standoff inside the court premises as the DSS operatives are refusing to allow Sowore and his lawyers come out of the place.
