Court Reviews Omoyele Sowore’s Bail Condition From N100 Million To N50 Million-medratimes

The Federal High Court in Abuja today heard Omoyele Sowore’s application for bail variation.

Sowore, who was arraigned on a four-count charge ranging from insulting President Muhammadu Buhari to money laundering, was given bail condition of paying N150 million and had his movement restricted to Abuja.

Femi Falana (SAN), who is representing Sowore, had described the conditions attached to his bail as “stringent”.

After the hearing, Justice Ijeoma Ojukwu has now varied Omoyele Sowore and Olawale Bakare’s bail conditions.

According to a report by SaharaReporters, Justice Ojukwu said she found it difficult to believe a man of Sowore’s pedigree did not have anyone to deposit N50 million.

Hence, Sowore bail condition was reviewed from N100 million to N50 million and the 50 security deposits was also removed while Olawale Bakare’s bail was reviewed from N50 million to N20 million.
