The judge, as part of bail conditions, asked Sowore to drop his passport with the court within 48 hours.
Sowore’s counsel, Femi Falana, who is currently at the DSS headquarters, confirmed that the bail confition has been fulfilled and Sowore will be released soon.
“I am currently at their headquarters. Having complied with the condition given by the court, I am here for Sowore’s release,” Falana told Punch correspondent in a telephone interview
