The convener of RevoutionNow Movement, Omoyele Sowore has revealed that operatives of the Department of State Services (DSS), vowed that he won’t walk out of detention alive, if he refused to compromise.
Sowore made this revelation on Friday, December 6, 2019, while DSS operatives attempted to re-arrest him in the courtroom of an Abuja Federal High Court.
KanyiDaily had reported that DSS operatives invaded the courtroom in Abuja, disrupted the ongoing trial of Sowore, chased away lawyers, before re-arresting the convener of RevolutionNow movement who was released barely 24hour after spending 124 days in their detention.
Speaking with newsmen at the courtroom in Abuja, Sowore disclosed that the DSS has been offering him all kinds of ‘goodies’, but he refused to compromise. So, they vowed that he won’t walk out of their detention alive.
“Nigerians should know that I’m not going to give up until every Nigerian benefit from a country that is theirs,” he said.
“They tried to break me in prison, sent delegations to me offering all kinds of things and I refused. They promised that I would not walk out of their detention alive and that is what they came here to implement today.
“Nobody in Nigeria should be afraid, this is our country and some people have to make the sacrifice for it to be a place of rule, law, and justice.”

Sowore’s re-arrest comes barely 24 hours after his release at exactly 7:15 pm on Thursday, hours after Justice Ijeoma Ojukwu of the Federal High Court in Abuja expressed displeasure over his continued detention by the agency.
Justice Ijeoma Ojukwu also ordered the DSS to pay the sum of N100,000 to Sowore, for refusing to release him on bail despite two court orders to that effect.
