Sowore’s re-arrest: Presidency defends DSS court invasion, condemns Falana

On Monday, The Presidency insisted that operatives of the Department of State Services, DSS, did not desecrate the “temple of justice,” following claims of courtroom invasion.

Buhari’s Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Mr. Femi Adesina made the remark while faulting the comments of Sowore’s counsel, Femi Falana on what transpired at an Abuja Federal High Court last week.

DSS, however, denied invading the courtroom before effecting Sowore’s re-arrest.

Also, Afunanya had claimed that none of its officers was involved in the incidents recorded in the courtroom.

While, reacting to the saga on Channels Television’s Sunrise Daily, Adesina accused Falana of being biased.

According to him: “Falana is not a neutral party; we know the side he belongs to in this matter. His opinion will not count much.

“We have had a concocted story, with concocted video or with incomplete video and then, the DSS has come out to give its own perspective and that then gives us a fairly balanced picture.

“It still will decide on the predilection of people what to believe but if you are fair-minded, balanced, or neutral, I’m sure you’ll have a balanced perspective of what happened.

“As far as I’m concerned, if you ask my opinion, I think what happened was not a desecration of the temple of justice as being portrayed because the DSS has explained how things played out. he also narrated.
