A magistrate court sitting in Wuse Zone 2, Abuja, on Monday, granted bail to the convener of #RevolutionNow, Omoyele Sowore, in the sum of N20 million.
Sowore and four others- Peter Williams, Sanyaolu Juwon, Emmanuel Bulus and Damilare Adenola – are standing trial for alleged unlawful assembly, criminal conspiracy, and inciting public disturbance.
The defendants were arrested by the police on New Year’s Eve during a protest against bad governance.
They were arraigned in court last week Monday on a three-count charge bordering on conspiracy, unlawful assembly, and incitement.
The four other defendants except Sowore were granted bail in liberal terms with a bond of one million each. (Guardian)
