RevolutionNow: Sowore, Bakare unable to meet bail conditions

The convener of the #RevolutionNow protest, Omoyele Sowore, and co-defendant, Olawale Bakare, charged with treasonable felony, among others, are yet to perfect the bail granted them on October 4, 2019 by a Federal High Court in Abuja.

It was learnt on Friday that both men are still in the custody of the Department of State Services (DSS) where they are being held.

Sowore and Bakare were granted bail in a ruling last Friday by Justice Ijeoma Ojukwu, but attached conditions, which his lawyer, Femi Falana described as stringent.

Justice Ojukwu had, while granting them bail, barred them from participating in any form of protest pending the conclusion of their trial.

However, report has it that their lawyers are planning to return to court, with an application to request for a reduction in the bail conditions to those which the defendants could readily meet.
