The Presidency has stated that it cannot weigh in on the prosecution of the convener of the #RevolutionNow protest, Omoyele Sowore, by the Department of State Services (DSS).
The Presidency made this known through the Special Adviser on Media and Publicity to the President, Femi Adesina during a live political programme on Channels television.
“It is an issue that is unravelling and I think it is still in the realm of security and judiciary.
“The DSS has a spokesman in Peter Afunanya. If you ask him this question, I’m sure he will be able to respond,” Adesina said.
The presidential spokesman added that he is yet to be briefed by President Muhammadu Buhari on the matter.
“As we are now, I think it is premature for the presidency to weigh into this matter but when the presidency speaks, it should be the final position on this.
“The President had been away. He came into the country yesterday. I have not been briefed. If he says this is our position on this matter then I can speak on it.
“Because I have not been briefed, I won’t be able to say much but I am sure as a media house if you try to speak with the spokesman of the DSS he may oblige,” he said.
