Worried by the twitchy situation surrounding their son’s continual detention in the custody of State Security Service (SSS), the family of embattled Omoyele Sowore is concerned over the condition of their son.
In a statement jointly signed by Deacon S.M Omoyeni, Olusegun Sowore and Robert Sowore, the Publisher of Sahara Reporters was allegedly ‘ injected’ with an unknown substance and beaten by one of the prosecuting counsel.
This development, they said happened in the presence of the State of State Security Service(SSS) inside the Federal High Courtroom, where he had been summoned for hearing of a suit.
Sowore’s family said:
” We are seriously worried when this assault happened openly inside the courtroom, a court which is the last hope of the masses.
“Who knows what they might have done to him now that has been in their custody for months. Everybody can see now that President Muhammadu Buhari and the SSS wanted to kill our son”.
The aggrieved Sowore’s family appealed to all well-meaning Nigerians,Nigeria Bar Association(NBA),National Assembly and International Communities to rescue safeguard their son.
Recall that Sowore had been granted bails by two different judges but those his final release was short lived as he was rearrested with the court premises.
This incident has generated so much reactions within and outside the country.
However, the SSS has come out to deny any attempt to rearrest Sowore in the court, even as Civil Society groups are threatening to go on the streets if the publisher of Sahara Reporters is not released in obedience to Rule of Law.
