Sowore: FG Has Ordered Probe Of Court Invasion By DSS - Malami
The Federal Government has ordered an investigation into the invasion of the Federal High Court, Abuja, by the operatives of the Department of State Service (DSS).
The DSS, in their bid to rearrest Omoyele Sowore, the presidential candidate of the African Action Congress in the February 2019 general election invaded the court, during which the judge fled the scene.

The information was made known by Mr. Abubakar Malami, the Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice who spoke to reporters on the Federal High Court premises in Abuja on Wednesday, after paying a courtesy visit to the Chief Judge of the court, Justice John Tsoho.

He also avoid giving a direct answer to questions on the reason for Sowore’s rearrest, which had drawn criticisms locally and internationally.

He also noted that he wasn't paying a visit to the Chief Judge over Sowore’s case, but to felicitate with him on his confirmation by the Senate as the substantive Chief Judge of the Federal High Court.

Asked if he was not appalled by the DSS’ conduct, Malami said, “Whatever affects the integrity of the court is a worrisome issue for us.

I can never be preemptive of an incident over which I was not a live witness to.

He added, “But one thing I am certain of is that the government has put in place mechanism for investigation of the reported incident.

So, I would not like to be preemptive in terms of a conclusion, one way or the other, without allowing the consummation and conclusion of the investigation process.
