DSS, Sowore Clash In Court
A video has emerged online showing some operatives of the Department of State Services (DSS) forcefully dragging Omoyele Sowore in court on Monday.
Recall as previously reported by Naija News, the DSS arraigned Sowore, convener of the #RevolutionNow protest and publisher of Sahara Reporters to court on Monday.
He was arraigned on a seven-count charge bordering on treasonable felony and money laundering before Justice Ijeoma Ojukwu of the Federal High Court in Abuja.
The activist was charged alongside Olawale Bakare who is standing trial on a two-count charge.
In the video obtained by our correspondent on Monday, Sowore was seen attempting to address fans and journalists but was been forcefully pushed and dragged along by the DSS operatives even as he continued talking and resisting the push.
