52-days after, Sowore granted bail




The Federal High Court sitting in Abuja on Tuesday has granted bail to the convener of RevolutionNow, Omoyele Sowore.

Justice Taiwo Taiwo made the ruling after listening to the argument of Sowore’s lawyer and the prosecuting counsel, J.O Agbadua.

Sowore was released to the custody of his counsel, Femi Falana, SAN.

The judge also as part of bail conditions, asked Sowore to drop his passport with the court within 48 hours.

The court, according to TVC had earlier struck out an application by the Department of Social Security (DSS) to further detain Sowore.

Sowore was arrested on August 3rd, by the DSS two days before a rally tagged Revolutionnow.
