Federal High Court Threatens To Jail DSS DG, Yusuf Bichi Over His Failure To Release Sowore

A Federal High Court in Abuja has threatened to jail Yusuf Bichi, director general of the Department of State Services (DSS), over the continued detention of Omoyele Sowore, convener of the #RevolutionNow Movement, and Olawale Bakare, an activist.

The judge Ijeoma Ojukwu, gave the warning on Monday after she had previously issued a “notice of consequences of disobedience of court order” otherwise known as form 48 on the DSS.

“Take notice that unless you obey the direction contained in the order of the Federal High Court of Justice, Abuja made on the 6th November 2019, which ordered you to release the defendants/applicants in suit no: FHC/ABJ/CR/235/2019 forthwith, you will be guilty of contempt of Court and will be liable to be committed to prison,” the notice read.
