49 Yoruba Nation agitators arrested and detained by the Lagos Police Command have been granted bail by the Lagos Magistrate Court sitting in Yaba on Monday.
According to the Nation, the Lagos Police Command had paraded the 49 suspects arrested in connection with Oodua Republic mega rally at Ojota.
Those paraded include 47 men and two women.
Some of the suspects, according to Commissioner of Police (CP) Hakeem Odumosu, were intercepted and found with guns, axes, Oodua flags, Yoruba Armed Forces vests and other items. Others were arrested at the protest ground in Ojota.
But the Yoruba self-determination groups’ umbrella body Ilana Omo Oodua (IOO) rose in defence of those arrested.
The IOO’s Media Communications Secretary, Mr. Maxwell Adeleye, confirmed to The Nation on Monday, the agitators are to provide N300, 000 with two sureties each.
A motion for their bail application was filed by human rights lawyers led by Olasupo Ojo and Oladapo Kayode.
