Forty-seven out of the 48 protesters arrested by the Nigerian Police during the Yoruba Nation Rally held July 3, 2021, in Lagos State have regained freedom.
They were released by the Magistrates’ Court in Yaba, Lagos State, after meeting their bail conditions.
The court had ruled that one of their sureties must be a family member and the other a community leader or clergy with proof of tax payment.
The Communications Manager, Ilana Omo Oodua, Maxwell Adeleye, confirmed their release in a statement on Tuesday.
He said, “This is to inform the general public that 47 out of the 48 protesters arrested by the Nigerian Police during the Yoruba Nation Rally held July 3rd, 2021 have been released from detention after meeting their bail conditions.”
