We are yet to be informed about Sowore meeting bail conditions -DSS

242

The Department of State Services (DSS) says it is yet to receive information that Omoyele Sowore has perfected his bail conditions as stipulated by the court.

Spokesperson for the service, Peter Afunaya said this on Thursday following reports that the agency had refused to release the rights activist despite him meeting his bail conditions.

Sowore is standing trial for alleged treasonable felony.

Despite meeting their bail conditions, Sowore, and his co-defendant, Olawale Bakare, are still in the custody of the DSS after Justice Ijeoma Ojukwu of the Federal High Court Abuja had ordered their release on Wednesday, November 6.

The trial has been adjourned till Dec. 5th and 6th 2019.

Justice Ojukwu adjourned the trial following an objection raised by Falana stating that the defense team was yet to be served with the witness statement that the prosecution is relying on to proceed with the trial.

The adjournment would allow the defence to study the application and respond accordingly.
