Court Maintains Bail For Sowore At 100 Million Naira.

The federal high court sitting in Abuja has varied the bail conditions for the convener of the #revolutionnow protest, Omoyele Sowore, and his co-defendant, Mr Olawale Bakare.

Justice Ijeoma Ojukwu who delivered a ruling on a motion filed by their counsel, Mr Femi Falana on their behalf, explained that she was persuaded to vary the bail conditions only as far as it concerns the deposit of the 50 million naira bail by one of the sureties for Sowore in her bail order three weeks ago.

She also ruled that all other bail conditions remain the same, while the bail bond for Olawale Bakare would be reduced from 50 million naira to 20 million naira.

Thereafter, the case was adjourned to November 6th and 7th 2019.
