LAGOS OCTOBER 5TH (NEWSRANGERS)-A Federal High Court sitting in Abuja, Nigeria’s capital, has granted N100 million bail to Omoyele Sowore, convener of RevolutionNow Movement.
It woud be recalled that the Sowore has been in custody of the Department of State Services (DSS) since August 3 when he was arrested in Lagos. He was granted the N100 million bail on Friday.

Sowore, who was a Presidential candidate in the 2019 general elections, had earlier been granted bail by a court but the DSS refused to release him while he was arraigned on September 30, alongside Olawale Bakare (Mandate), his co-defendant, on a 7-count charge of felony brought against him by the federal government led by President Muhammadu Buhari.
On Friday, the presiding judge, Justice Ijeoma Ojukwu, ruled that the prosecution failed to show good reasons why the defendants should not be granted bail since the offences are bail able.
Justice Ojukwu also granted N50 million bail to Bakare. He restricted Sowore from speaking with journalists and travelling outside Abuja.
