A federal high court in Abuja has summoned Abubakar Malami, attorney-general of the federation (AGF), and Yusuf Bichi, director-general of the Department of State Services (DSS), over the re-arrest of Omoyele Sowore.
The court asked them to appear before it on Monday, December 23, for the unlawful arrest and detention of Sowore, pro-democracy activist.
Inyang Ekwo, the judge, gave the order on Tuesday, following an application filed by Marshal Abubakar, a counsel in Sowore’s legal team, seeking an order for the release of the detained activist.
Recall that the Attorney general said on Monday that he could not take unilateral decision and request that Omoyele Sowore be released by the Department of State service from custody.
