Shehu Sani Laments Rejection Of Free $2.7m Puma Kits

Human Right Activist, Shehu Sani, has reacted to the ruling by an Abuja court, which granted bail to the Sahara Reporter Publisher, Omoyele Sowore.

The former Senator representing Kaduna Central Senatorial district described the bail as a welcome development.

Sani in a tweet called on the Department of State Services, to comply with the court ruling.

“@YeleSowore bail, a welcome development; next is compliance,” he tweeted.

Naija News had earlier reported that the Justice Ijeoma Ojukwu-led court granted Sowore bail in the sum of N100 million, on Friday and two sureties in like sum.

Ojukwu held that the prosecution failed to show good reasons the defendants should not be granted bail since the offences are bailable.

The convener of the “Revolution Now” was restricted from travelling outside Abuja.

Sowore has been in custody of the Department of State Services (DSS) since August 3 when he was arrested in Lagos for calling for a revolution protest against the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration.
