Human rights lawyer, Mr. Femi Falana (SAN) has said the convener of #RevolutionNow protest, Omoyele Sowore, and co-defendant, Olawale Bakare have meet the bail conditions imposed on them.

The duo were charged with treasonable felony among other offences.

The human rights lawyer told the Federal High Court in Abuja adding that the defendants would be freed later on Wednesday.

He said, “I have already explained to the learned prosecuting counsel that we are encumbered by the refusal of the State Security Service to allow us to prepare for the defence of the defendants.

“I had already asked my learned counsel for the prosecution, that we are confident that the defendants will be freed today (Wednesday) from the custody of the SSS having met the bail conditions imposed on them by this honourable court.

“Once they are liberated from the custody of the SSS, we will be in a position to take full instruction from them.”
