BREAKING: Court Grants Sowore N100m Bail, Bars Him From Travelling Outside Abuja


A federal high court in Abuja on Friday granted a N100 million bail to Omoyele Sowore, detained founder of online newspaper Sahara Reporters and convene of the #RevolutionNow Movement.

Sowore has been in custody of the Department of State Services (DSS) since August 3 when he was arrested in Lagos.

Justice Ijeoma Ojukwu, the presiding judge, ruled that the prosecution failed to show good reasons why the defendants should not be granted bail since the offences are bailable.

Sowore was arraigned on September 30, alongside Olawale Bakare, his co-defendant, on a 7-count charge of felony brought against him by the federal government.

This is the second bail he has been granted in less than than two weeks
