In what looks like another side to the general news reports by some sections of the media that Omoyele Sowore was on Friday arrested in the court room during court sitting,an eye witness Mr Wale Fapohunda, who was also in court when Sowore’s re-arrest was purportedly effected inside the courtroom disclosed that men of the Deparment of state security services (DSS) made an attempt to arrest Sowore outside the court.
“So I was in court today and here is what happened. The court had adjourned his matter till 11th Feb next year. The court called the next matter and proceeding had commenced in respect of the next matter.
Sowore stepped out of the court room and suddenly we heard noises coming from the corridor “leave me alone” “they want to kill me” “they want to kill Sowore” and all that.
Suddenly Sowore’s people started dragging him with the DSS and they dragged him into the court room. The judge seeing this, rose and went to her chambers. The DSS didn’t enter the court room to arrest him rather his supporters dragged him in with the DSS official.
Nobody chased the judge out, she rose and went to her chambers on seeing squabbles. Later on, the DSS official left the court room and waited for him outside the court. Behold my eye witness account”.
