Sahara Reporters reported that  DSS operatives initially refused Sowore and his lawyers exit from the court room, laying siege on the court.

According to reports, after a standoff resulting from trying to rearrest Sowore, his lawyer, Femi Falana opted to drive the activist to the office of the DSS.

In the process of driving Sowore to the office of the DSS, Falana had a brief  discussion with the lawyer of the secret police Hassan Liman, however the Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN) was not allowed out of the court premises by armed security operatives who blocked the court gate, attempting to rearrest Sowore again.

Falana however suceeded in driving out of the court with security operatives in pursuit.
