#RevolutionNow convener, Omoyele Sowore has appealed the bail condition which restricts his movement only around Abuja.

Recall that Justice Ijeoma Ojukwu had imposed a N100m bail bond on Sowore who was arrested on charges of treason, money laundering and insulting the president in 2019. She subsequently reduced Sowore’s bail from N100m to N50m, and further directed that he must produce sureties who reside in Abuja and must also have landed property worth the bail sum in Abuja. The activist was also directed to deposit his passport with the registry of the federal high court in Abuja, and also barred him from travelling outside Abuja pending the period of the trial.

Sowore has now filed an appeal against the judgement of the Federal High Court sitting in Abuja. Channels Television reported that he is is challenging the bail condition restricting him to stay in the Federal Capital Territory, pending the hearing and determination of the suit filed against him by the Federal Government.
