Alleged Treasonable Felony: Court discharges Sowore, Bakare

A Federal High Court in Abuja, on Monday, discharged Omoyele Sowore and Olawale Bakare of an alleged treasonable felony charge by the Attorney-General of the Federation (AGF), Mr Lateef Fagbemi, SAN.

Justice Emeka Nwite also ordered the Department of State Service (DSS) to immediately release three phones and the sum of N10, 000 seized from Sowore during his arrest.

The judge also ordered the DSS to release a phone belonging to Bakare and the sum of N1, 500 confiscated from him during his arrest.

Justice Nwite equally ordered that Sowore’s international passport be released.

The orders followed an application by the lawyer to Sowore and Bakare, Mr Femi Falana, SAN, to the effect.

Recall that Sowore and Bakare were earlier arraigned before Justice Ijeoma Ojukwu in 2019 before the matter was reassigned to Nwite.
