The Presidency has reacted to the release of the Convener of the Revolution Now protest, Mr. Omoyele Sowore and a former National Security Adviser, Mr. Sambo Dasuki by the Department of State Service (DSS).
While Dasuki was arrested in December 2015, Sowore was rearrested on December 5 after his initial arrest on August 5.
Although both men regained their freedom, the Attorney General of Justice and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami, said the release was in compliance with subsisting court orders.
But speaking during an interview on Channels Television’s Politics Today on Wednesday, the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Mr. Garba Shehu, said the President Muhammadu Buhari administration ordered their release despite not agreeing to the verdict of the court.
The fact remains that in DEMOCRATIC SETTINGS; THE GOVERNMENT MUST AGREE WITH COURT RULINGS.
