About 15 operatives of the Department of State Services (DSS) has just rearrested Sahara Reporters publisher, Omoyele Sowore, and his co-defendant, Olawale Bakare, after the Friday’s proceedings at the Federal High Court in Abuja.
Supporters of the duo had resisted attempts by men of the DSS to arrest them in the court.
After waiting in the court for about two hours after the attempt their lawyer, Femi Falana, who had denied knowledge of such fresh charges, led them downstairs where armed DSS personel were waiting.
He was rearrested after the close of the Friday’s proceedings which the judge, Justice Ijeoma Ojukwu, had adjourned till February 11.
Before the fresh arrest, a stampede occurred as Sowore and his supporters tried to resist the operatives of the DSS numbering about 15.
