Under Section 27 of the Terrorism Prevention Act, according to the motion ex-parte brought by the DSS, the agency accused Sowore of engaging in terrorism Act.

It tendered two digital video disks (DVD), which contained recording of Sowore’s meeting with Nnamdi Kanu (of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra – IPOB) and an interview where Sowore was said to have boasted that members of the equally proscribed Islamic Movement of Nigeria (IMN) were going to join forces with him to bring down the Nigerian government.
