The Department of State Services (DSS) has denied that its operatives disrupted proceedings at the Federal High Court, Abuja, in a bid to rearrest the convener of the RevolutionNow Protest, Omoyele Sowore, on Friday.

In a statement by the agency’s spokesperson, Peter Afunanya, on Saturday, the DSS claimed that its personnel were never involved in the incident.

Afunanya said, “Our personnel were never, at any time, involved in the incident.

“In actual fact, it was his people who seized him.”

Recall that DSS operatives Invaded the Federal High Court in Abuja on Friday, disrupting proceedings and chasing away presiding judge, Justice Ijeoma Ojukwu, and forcefully taking Sowore away less than 24 hours after he was finally released on bail after two previous court orders.

The journalist was standing trial in a case brought against him by the government when the incident happened.

More so, on the missing Olawale Bakare, the DSS said only Sowore was rearrested, adding that they were not interested in Bakare
