The Department of State Services DSS, has said it never invaded court room at the Federal High Court in Abuja to arrest Omoyele Sowore.

It said the incident on Friday was orchestrated for the purpose of propaganda and to bring the Service to disrepute.

A statement by the Public Relations Officer of the National Headquarters of the DSS in Abuja, Peter Afunanya, said the agency as a professional, responsible and law abiding organization, could not have invaded a courtroom including the one presided over by a respected Judge who is not only handling its case but whose order was unconditionally obeyed within a 24 hour ultimatum.

This is coming as the National Human Rights Commission NHRC has asked the federal government to arrest and prosecute officials of the DSS who re-arrested Sowore, at a federal high court, Abuja, on Friday.

However, the NHRC in a statement by its Executive Secretary, Tony Ojukwu, said it was dismayed by the “conduct of law enforcement officers at the Federal High Court Abuja.
