A Federal High Court sitting in Abuja has granted bail to the 12 aides of Yoruba Nation Agitator Sunday Adeyemo popularly known as Sunday Igboho.
Delivering the ruling on the application, Justice Obiora Egwuatu, said it was clear that no charge has been brought against the 12 aides since their arrest.
Justice Egwuatu thereafter granted them bail with the provision of the Constitution that empowered the court to exercise its discretionary powers to grant the applicant bail.
As such, the court held that detaining them without charging them contravenes the provisions of the Administration of Criminal Justice Act and their fundamental rights.
Eight of the applicants were granted bail in the sum of 5 Million each with surety who must be Abuja residents in like sum.
The remaining four were granted bail in the sum of N10 million each with surety in like sum.
