Following the claims of the Department of State Services that its operatives did not disrupt proceedings at the Federal High Court, Abuja to rearrest Mr. Omoyele Sowore, on Friday, Mr. Femi Falana (SAN) has revealed that the DSS team leader apologised to Justice Ijeoma Ojukwu over the invasion. According to Falana, the DSS operatives were unable to defend their conduct, hence their subsequent apology to the judge, who was forced to adjourn cases on her list following the invasion. 2' Home » News » Court invasion: DSS apologised to Justice Ojukwu ― Falana Court invasion: DSS apologised to Justice Ojukwu ― Falana ON DECEMBER 8, 20196:44 PMIN NEWSBY DAVID O ROYAL Following the claims of the Department of State Services that its operatives did not disrupt proceedings at the Federal High Court, Abuja to rearrest Mr. Omoyele Sowore, on Friday, Mr. Femi Falana (SAN) has revealed that the DSS team leader apologised to Justice Ijeoma Ojukwu over the invasion.
