Despite The Bail Sowore Spend Night in Jail

Sowore Spends Night In Jail despite Fulfiling Bail Conditions


The Sahara Reporter, Sowore Omoyele has not been released from jail.

Nigerian government is yet to release the detained publisher of Sahara Reporters, Omoyele Sowore, despite receiving an affidavit of compliance to the court order directing his release on Wednesday morning.

Marshal Abubakar, a lawyer with the Chambers of Mr Sowore's lead counsel, Femi Falana report to PREMIUM TIMES on Wednesday night that they left the office of Nigeria's State Security Service at 10.30 p.m. on Wednesday without Mr Sowore.

This was despite the court order which had instructed an immediate release of the respondent.

PREMIUM TIMES reported how Mr Sowore's lawyers submitted documents indicating full compliance to the order for Mr Sowore's release at the SSS office where it was received by an official, Ayuba Adam, at 10.08 a.m on Wednesday.
