Court orders immediate release of Sowore

The Federal High Court in Abuja has ordered the immediate freedom  for the detained publisher of Sahara Reporters, Omoyele Sowore.

The court made the order  Tuesday that there was no extant order allowing Mr Sowore’s further detention before the court.

The court said Mr Sowore must deposit his international passport within 48 hours after his release and ordered that his lawyer, Femi Falana, should be responsible for producing him in court once he has been notified of the charge against him.

The judge, Taiwo Taiwo, said the law provides for the freedom of all Nigerians regardless of economic or political status.
