The Federal High Court, Abuja, has threatened to jail the Director-General of the Department of State Services, Yusuf Bichi, over the detention of the publisher of Sahara Reporters, Omoyele Sowore.
Naija News understands that the court made this known in a warning notice dated Thursday, September 26.
In the notice tagged “notice of disobedience to order of court” issued by the court and addressed to the DSS DG, the Federal High Court directed the boss of the secret police to comply with its directive or face grave consequences, which includes “commitment to prison”.
Recall that Sowore has remained in detention more than 24 hours after meeting his bail condition as set by Justice Taiwo Taiwo of the Federal High Court, Abuja, on Tuesday in a ruling.
He was arrested in Lagos on August 3, over a planned RevolutionNow protest which however took place despite his arrest.
Sowore had been slammed with a seven-count charge bordering on treasonable felony and insulting President Muhammadu Buhari.
