Samuel Ogala, Lawyer representing the detained convener of RevolutionNow Movement, Omoyele Sowore says Sowore is expected to be released on Wednesday after the defense team had signed some legal documents.

Concise News understands that Ogala, a lawyer in Femi Falana’s Chamber, disclosed this while given the reason Sowore has not been released, despite being granted bail by a court on Tuesday.

He said, “Some documents have to first be signed. We have obtained the court order, so today the necessary documents would be signed before his release.”

This news medium had reported that a judge of the Federal High Court in Abuja, Taiwo Taiwo, had ordered the immediate release of Sowore after the prosecution informed the court of its completion of investigations into the allegations against the activist.

The judge said Sowore’s lead counsel, Femi Falana, a senior advocate of Nigeria, would be responsible for ensuring he appears in court for trial.

“It is therefore ordered that the respondent be released forthwith. But he must deposit his international passport with this court within 48 hours of this order,” Taiwo said.

“Further, the respondent shall be released to Femi Falana forthwith by the applicant, that is the State Security Service (SSS).

“Femi Falana shall ensure that the respondent is produced for his formal arraignment whenever he or the respondent is notified.”
