The Federal High Court in Abuja has heard the application of Sahara Reporters publisher, Omoyele Sowore, to vary his bail conditions.

Justice Ijeoma Ojukwu had on Ocotber 4th set the bail at N100 million for the civil rights activist and former presidential candidate who is currently being detained by the Department of State Security Services on charges of treason, which many deem to be frivolous.

According to Sahara Reporters, Justice Ojukwu said she found it difficult to believe a man of Sowore’s pedigree did not have anyone to deposit N50 million.

She reduced his bail to N50 million and waived the security deposit of N50 million a surety was to deposit.

The case was adjourned until November 6 and 7 for commencement on trial.
