Alleged Illegal Detention: DSS Says El-Zakzaky, Dasuki, Sowore Opted For Service’s Custody

The Department of State Services, DSS has said that the former National Security Adviser Sambo Dasuki, leader of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria Ibrahim El-Zakzaky and Sahara Reporters publisher Omoleye Sowore chose to remain in DSS custody instead of any other correctional facility.

DSS Spokesman, Peter Afunanya in a statement said there has been uproar about alleged illegal detention of some persons undergoing trials at the Courts and disobedience to Court orders by the service.

It added that Sambo Dasuki and Ibrahim El-Zakzaky had appealed to the Courts to be left in the custody of the service instead of the correctional centres.

The statement also said Omoleye Sowore, who, on a similar order of the Court, was to be remanded at the Kuje or Suleja Centre, but chosen to be kept at the DSS.
