BREAKING: Very Sad News For RevolutionNow Leader, Omoyele Sowore, And The Entire South-West

The Convener of the #RevolutionNow Protests, Omoyele Sowore, and his co-Defendant, Olawale Bakare, who were charged with treasonable felony, are yet to meet the conditions attached to the bail granted to them on October 4, 2019, by a Federal High Court, in Abuja.
Sowore and Bakare were granted bail in a ruling last Friday, by Justice Ijeoma Ojukwu, who attached conditions, which Sowore’s Lawyer, Femi Falana, SAN, described as stringent.
It was learnt on Wednesday, in Abuja, that their Lawyers have decided to return to court, to seek a reduction in the bail conditions, to those which the Defendants could readily meet.

Justice Ojukwu had while granting them bail, also barred them from participating in any form of protest, pending the conclusion of their trial.
The Judge, who granted Sowore bail at N100 million, and two sureties in the same amount, barred him from travelling out of Abuja, as well.

The Judge also ordered him (Sowore) to deposit N50 million in the account of the court, as security.
She granted Bakare bail at N50 million, with a surety in the same amount, and barred him from travelling out of his base, in Osogbo, except while coming for the trial in Abuja.

The Judge added that the sureties, who must be resident in Abuja, must also have landed assets worth the bail sum in Abuja, and should deposit the original title documents of the assets with the court.
Justice Ojukwu ordered that the Defendants be remanded in the custody of the Department of State Security Services, DSS, pending when they are able to meet the bail conditions.
