A magistrates’ court in Lagos, Monday, 19 July, granted bail to the 49 Yoruba Nation agitators following their arrest in the state, Punch reports.

Yoruba self-determination group’s umbrella body Ilana Omo Oodua (IOO) who rose in defense of those arrested, said a motion for their bail application was filed by human rights lawyers led by Olasupo Ojo and Oladapo Kayode.

IOO’s Media Communications Secretary, Mr. Maxwell Adeleye said the agitators are to provide N300, 000 with two sureties each.

The Lagos State police command on July 3rd arrested the agitators at Ojota, Lagos while protesting in support of the actualization of the Yoruba Nation and demanding the freedom of Yoruba freedom fighter, Sunday Adeyemo, aka Sunday Igboho.

Recall that on July 1, two days before the event, the Department of State Services (DSS) breached the home of the promoter, Sunday Igboho.
