Presidential aide on Social Media, Lauretta Onochie has come out to explain the position of the Presidency on the incident widely reported on Friday as the attempt by officials of the Department of State Services (DSS) to rearrest the convener of the #RevolutionNow protest. Omoyele Sowore and his co-defendant, Olawale Bakare in the Federal High Court Abuja
Below is the lengthy post on her Facebook page published Saturday afternoon in which she described the incident as “Courtroom Drama”.
WHO DRAMA EPP? EVERY LIE WILL EXPIRE.
COURTROOM DRAMA EXPLAINED.
ðŸŽ So it was a stage-managed drama in the court yesterday; Sowore pinned down by his supporters in a courtroom in order to give DSS a bad name.
ðŸŽ There was no gun. No batton. No pinning down. Just plain drama planned and staged by his boys and girls. Kudos, but every lie has an expiration date.
ðŸŽ Many EYEWITNESSES have said DSS was OUTSIDE the courtroom, not inside the courtroom.
ðŸ’¥ Here’s one more eyewitness account as reported by Adeniyi Adegbomire SAN-
ðŸ’¥ A friend of mine, Wale Fapohunda, who was in court today when Sowore’s re-arrest was purportedly effected inside the courtroom has this to say about the incident ðŸ‘‡ðŸ¾:
ðŸ’¥ “Okay, so I was in court today and here is what happened.
ðŸ’¥ The court had adjourned his matter till 11th Feb next year.
ðŸ’¥ The court called the next matter and proceeding had commenced in respect of the next matter.
ðŸ’¥ Sowore stepped OUT OF THE COURTROOM and suddenly we heard noises coming from the corridor “leave me alone” “they want to kill me” “they want to kill Sowore” and all that.
ðŸ’¥ Suddenly Sowore’s people started dragging him with the DSS and they (Sowores team) dragged him into the courtroom.
ðŸ’¥ The judge seeing this, rose and went to her chambers.
ðŸ’¥ The DSS didn’t enter the courtroom to arrest him rather his supporters dragged him in with the DSS official.
ðŸ’¥ Nobody chased the judge out, she rose and went to her chambers on seeing squabbles.
ðŸ’¥ The DSS official left the courtroom and waited for him outside the court.
ðŸ’¥ Thank you all. Behold my eye witness account”.
ðŸŽ Blackmailing government enforcement agencies was how our nation went into decay. It won’t work this time. NO ONE IS ABOVE THE LAW.
ðŸŽ It appears everyone in that drama was part of the drama club. They harassed a Court officer who wanted them out as they were disrupting another court case. A Lawyer who looked bemused with the whole drama was lost for words.
ðŸŽ Drama has not helped Dino Melaye. It has not helped Olise Metuh. Drama has not helped Orji Uzo Kalu.
ðŸŽ Drama will not help Sowore because Once you dramatise a lie to the members of the public to attract sympathy, you lose all of that sympathy when they find out you have misled them.
ðŸŽ I’m also of the opinion that the police look into these videos, (I have watched four) and charge those who deliberately misled the general public on this issue.
ðŸŽ God bless Nigeria.
