Court Maintains Bail Conditions for Sowore

A Federal High Court sitting in Abuja has maintained the bail of N100m with two sureties in like sum, given to the convener of the Revolution Now protests, Omoyele Sowore.

 

The trial judge, Justice Ijeoma Ojukwu, gave the order on Monday after hearing a motion filed by Sowore, seeking a variation in his bail conditions.

 

She, however, varied the bail conditions as far as it concerns the payment of N50 million bail security and reduced the bail bond for Olawale Bakare to N20 million and one surety in like sum.

 

She also noted that all other aspects of the bail conditions which include that the defendants must not speak to the media and must remain in Abuja, still stand.

 

Omoyele Sowore has been in the custody of the DSS since August 3 after he was arrested for spearheading the #RevolutionNow protest.
