#RevolutionNow: Chief Registrar Orders Magistrate Not To Release Protesters

The Chief Registrar of Lagos State has instructed
the magistrate handling the case of
RevolutionNow protesters not to approve their
release.
According to SaharaReporters, the protesters
were arraigned before Mrs. Komolafe of the Ebute
Metta Magistrate Court. The police charged the
protesters on a two-count charge bothering on
unlawful gathering and breach of public peace.
The protesters pleaded not guilty and were
granted bail in sum of N100,000 with two sureties
each. But the magistrate has been instructed not
to sign the bail conditions. The bail conditions of
one of the defendants known as Kenechukwu has
been met but the presiding magistrate has
refrained from signing off his release.
The protesters would now be transferred to
Kirikiri Prison for the time being. The police
clamped down on peaceful protesters calling for
good governance across the country on Monday,
August 5th.
The march was triggered by the arrest of Omoyele
Sowore, a human rights activist and convener of
RevolutionNow movement by operatives of the
Department of State Services on Saturday, August
3rd.
