The family of Omoyele Sowore has said that the Department of State Services detention despite the court’s directive for his release does not portray the government in a good light.
The family has asked the DSS to release their son immediately, adding that the DSS has no regard for the rule of law.
Their statemment is contained in a statement they release signed by Olusegun Sowore and Robert Sowore.
It reads, “The continued incarceration of Omoyele in DSS custody, even after the court had given directive for his release give us cause for concern.
“The attitude does not portray the government in a good light in the eyes of the citizens and international observers.
“The family is particularly worried about the DSS disregard for the rule of law.
“We envisage that the DSS in their characteristic manner would deliberately want to incarcerate him for no just cause even after meeting his stringent bail conditions slammed on him.
“We call on well-meaning Nigerians, human rights organisations, President Muhammadu Buhari, governors and legislators to urgently intervene in the matter.”
