A Chief Magistrate Court sitting in Abuja has granted bail to Sahara Reporters’ publisher, Omoyele Sowore in the sum of N20m, and the four other activists in the sum of N1m each.
Recall that Omoleye Sowore, Juwon Sanyaolu, Peter Williams, Emmanuel Bulus, and Damilare Adenola were arrested on New Year’s Eve for holding a protest against bad governance.
The activists have been standing trial on the count of unlawful assembly, criminal conspiracy, and inciting public disturbance.
Chief Magistrate Mabel Segun-Bello ruling on the bail application on Monday, January 11, 2021, admitted Sowore to bail in the sum of N20million and two sureties in like sum.
Sowore was ordered by the court to remain in Abuja and must physically report to the court registrar every Monday and Friday pending the hearing and determination of the case against him.
