Crossover Protest: Sowore’s bail application stalled

The bail application of media personality, Omoyele Sowore and four others has again suffered a temporary setback after the Nigeria Police Force failed to produce them in court.

Lawyer to the Defendants, Marshal Abubakar who spoke to newsmen at the Chief Magistrate Court in Wuse Zone 2, Abuja said the Police claim to have handed the case file to a Deputy Inspector General (DIG) of Police for further prosecution.

Abubakar said the DIG who was called to produce the Defendants claimed to have handed the case file to the Director of Public Prosecution on the instruction of the Attorney General of the Federation (AGF).

Recall that Sowore and the other defendants who are standing trial for alleged criminal conspiracy, unlawful assembly, and inciting public disturbance were remanded at the Force CIID facility in Area 10 on Tuesday January 10, following the media personality’s complaints of being denied food and medical attention at the Kuje Correctional Centre.
