Court Grants Sowore Bail, See Terms And Conditions

Court Grants Sowore Bail, See Terms And Conditions

The #RevolutionNow protest convener, Mr. Omoyele Sowore, has been granted bail by the Federal High Court in Abuja.

Justice Ijeoma Ojukwu, however, prohibited them from addressing any rally until their trial was completed on charges of treasonable crime, among others.

On Friday, the bail was issued.

During the court, she also stopped Sowore from moving from Abuja and the second defendant from Osogbo.

In the sum of N100 m, she granted Sowore bail with two guarantees in the same amount.

The security guards who must be resident in Abuja must also have landed assets worth the bail amount in Abuja and must deposit with the court the original asset title papers.

The judge also ordered that the amount of N50 m be deposited as protection in the court's account.

For one guarantee, she granted bail to the second defendant in the N50 m number.

The bail conditions are defined as stringent by the lawyer of the defendants, Mr. Femi Falana (SAN).

The judge ordered the suspect to be remanded in the State Service Department's custody pending when the bail conditions would be met.
