Eromosele Court hearing

According to Reports reaching Oyogist.com, The Yaba Magistrates Court has granted bail of N1 Million to an EndSARS protester, Eromosele Adene with two sureties required.

According to sources, the court hearing which began at about 11 am today, was ordained by the presence of Numerous Police Officials at the Yaba Magistrates Court in order to prevent Journalists from entry into the court room.

At about 11:25am, Eromosele arrived the court premises, with his mother who seemed certain that her son, would be released. Prior to the hearing, the Police prosecutor requested the magistrate to grant the Police a remand order to keep Eromosele in custody so as to further investigate him for acts including criminal incitement under Nigeria’s Terrorism Act, while stating that Eromosele’s fundamental right can be temporarily seized to prevent the commission of a crime.

Eromosele’s counsel while defending his client, said Eromosele had every constitutional right to call for a protest, so being he has not been accused of calling for a riot.

He said people should be arrested when they allow peaceful protests turn disastrous.

“They (Police) are trying to overreach not only the defendant, but the court of law.” Eromosele Counsel said.
