Days after DSS operatives allegedly stormed court to re-arrest Omoyele Sowore, members of the family of the embattled publisher of Sahara Reporters have expressed their deep concerns over the state of health of their son.
In a statement jointly signed by Deacon S.M Omoyeni, Olusegun Sowore and Robert Sowore, the family alleged that Omoyele Sowore was allegedly ‘ injected’ with an unknown substance and beaten by one of the prosecuting counsel.
According to the family, the development occurred in the presence of the Department of State Security Service(DSS) inside the Federal High Courtroom, where he had been summoned for hearing of a suit.
”We are seriously worried when this assault happened openly inside the courtroom, a court which is the last hope of the masses, Sowore’s family said.
“Who knows what they might have done to him now that has been in their custody for months. Everybody can see now that President Muhammadu Buhari and the DSS wanted to kill our son”.
The aggrieved Sowore’s family appealed to all well-meaning Nigerians, Nigeria Bar Association(NBA), National Assembly and International Communities to rescue safeguard their son.
