The Federal High Court, Abuja, on Monday reviewed the bail conditions earlier granted to Omoleye Sowore, Convener, #RevolutionNow movement and his co-defendant, Olawale Bakare.


News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that on Oct. 4, the court granted Sowore N50 million bail, with two sureties in like sum, and to deposit N50million as security.

Bakare was also granted N50million bail with one surety.

Justice Ijeoma Ojukwu waived his earlier order that Sowore deposit N50million as security and reduced the amount attached to Bakare’s bail from N50million to N20million.

Ojukwu said all earlier bail conditions by the court remained, and emphasised the restraining order on the defendants from participating in rallies due to the nature of the case.

They are to deposit the original title documents of the property with the court.
