A judge of the federal high court sitting in Abuja, Ijeoma Ojukwu, has awarded the sum of N100,000 against the Department of State Services (DSS) for disobeying an order for the release Omoyele Sowore, pro-democracy activist.

The judge said the DSS cannot constitute itself as parallel court of law.

She asked the DSS to release the activist within 24 hours.

Sowore has been in custody of the DSS after he was arrested for allegedly calling for a revolution.

The court had recently ordered the release of Sowore alongside Olawale Adebayo.

The DSS is yet to comply with the order and claimed that no surety had come to take Sowore on bail.

A few weeks ago, a group of protesters led by Deji Adeyanju alleged that they were given N1m to stop the protest aimed at demanding for Sowore’s release.

The DSS, however, said it will release Sowore if his sureties come forward for documentation.
