Court Grants Activist Sowore N100million Bail With New Conditions..

An Abuja Federal High Court has granted bail to the co-convener of RevolutionNow movement, Omoyele Sowore.

Justice Ijeoma Ojukwu granted Sowore bail in the sum of N100 million, on Friday and two sureties in like sum.
She held that the prosecution failed to show good reasons the defendants should not be granted bail since the offences are bailable.

The presiding judge restricted Sowore from travelling outside Abuja.

The second defendant, Bakare was granted bail in the sum of N50 million and prohibited him from travelling outside Osun State.

The judge also barred both Sowore and Bakare from addressing the press until the completion of the trial and ordered that they be remanded in prison custody until the fulfilment of their bail conditions.

Counsel to Sowore also asked the court for two weeks’ adjournment.

Falana appealed to the court for Sowore to be taken to DSS’ custody instead of prison’s because his client was safer there.

The prosecution counsel, Hassan Liman, agreed with Falana’s submission.

Sowore has been in custody of the Department of State Services (DSS) since August 3 when he was arrested in Lagos for calling for a revolution protest against the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration.

The former Presidential candidate was arraigned on September 30, alongside Olawale Bakare, his co-defendant, on a 7-count charge of felony brought against him by the federal government.

*Where will Sowore see N100 million for Bail?Two people in the like sum in hard times like this?
He should not travel outside Nigeria to see his Family?I just tire!!!


  1. What type of bail condition is that

  2. Stella, it's not outside Nigerian but Abuja..he can't even address the press.

  3. Enter your comment...bail bonds are not Paid na unless the defendant absconds then his surety pays the bond hence,such a defendant finds a reliable surety worth that amount,that is the challenge. oh well,if not on the controversial circumstances sowore was detained,he would have applied for bail on self recognizance.
    on restricted movement, the judge did her best on the bail terms.I guess the charge against sowore is tantamount to treason, so its fair that his movement is restricted to secure his presence for trial.

  4. Please the should lock the gate of the detention center and put the key inside Nembe ocean. Sowore is a known blackmailler. Thank you.
