A magistrate court sitting in Wuse Zone 2, Abuja on Monday granted bail to Omoyele Sowore in the sum of ₦20 million with other conditions attached.

Omoleye who was the convener of “Revolution Now” Movement and Publisher of Sahara Reporters was granted bail.

Others granted bail are Peter Williams, Sanyaolu Juwon, Emmanuel Bulus and Damilare Adenola, they were all arrested on New Year’s eve during a "cross over with protest" and procession organised and led by Sowore.

The police had arraigned the five persons last Monday on a three-count charge bordering on conspiracy, unlawful assembly, and incitement.

Mabel Segun-Bello, the magistrate, had ordered that they be remanded at the Kuje correctional centre.

But last Tuesday, they were transferred to the Force Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department (FCIID) after Sowore reported that they were denied access to their healthcare, food, and water.

It is also worthy to note that all bail conditions are met including that of Sowore.

Marshal Abubakar, counsel to the defendant, while moving the application for bail, asked the court to grant bail to his clients “on self recognisance or in the alternative, grant bail in the most liberal terms”.

The ruling which was scheduled for Friday was stalled due to the failure of the police to produce the defendants in court.

In Nigeria, protest is among the constitutional rights deem to be enjoying by the citizens but under the Major General Muhammadu Buhari led tyrannt regime, many have suffered even by paying ultimate prize for daring protest against the maladministration and cluelessness of the incumbent leadership.
