The Department of State Services (DSS) has accused the convener of #RevolutionNow protest, Omoyele Sowore, of “cashing on the special privileges” provided to him at the service’s detention facility to “mobilise Nigerians for violence and revolution against the government via telephone.”
DSS spokesman, Peter Afunanya, who made the accusation while briefing journalists at the headquarters of the secret police yesterday in Abuja, dismissed reports by Sowore’s lawyer, Mr. Femi Falana (SAN), that he was at the service to secure bail of the former presidential candidate.
He said: “There is nothing that Sowore needed that we don’t provide him with. He has been using his phone to mobilise people and even call for violence and action against the Nigerian state.
“The records are straight. Falana has not been here since this thing started. Mr. Femi Falana has not visited this office since the issue of bail started.”
