Nigerian government offered Sowore ‘death warrant’ deal - Femi Falana
Omoyele Sowore's lead counsel Femi Falana who appeared on TVC’s Your View on Monday December 9, disclosed that the Nigerian government reached out for a deal during his client's first 45 days in detention.
According to the human rights activist, the Department of State Services reached out to him to persuade Sowore to sign a death warrant deal but he told them off.
“They went to a court behind us and got an order to detain Sowore for 45 days to investigate his alleged terrorism,” Femi Falana said on TVC’s Your View on Monday.
“At the end of the investigation, nothing was found but they went to him in detention to reach a deal."
“When they could not succeed, they met me and they wanted me to persuade him to agree to sign his death warrant and I told them off,” he added.
According to Femi Falana, the charges filed against Sowore came after the DSS failed in getting him to sign a deal with them.
