Justice Taiwo Taiwo had ordered the release of Mr. Sowore after hearing arguments from both the prosecuting and defence counsels. The bail conditions included that he deposits all his travel documents with the court in the next 48 hours. Also, the judge asked Mr Falana to present him (Sowore) whenever the court needs him – all of which as at the time of filing this post has been met.
