An Abuja Federal High Court on Tuesday granted co-convener of the RevolutionNow movement, Omoyele Sowore, bail.

Justice Taiwo Taiwo said there was no longer a subsisting order holding Mr Sowore in detention, hence the need to grant him bail.

Justice Taiwo, however, ordered Mr Sowore to deposit his international passport to the court while releasing him to his lawyer, Femi Falana.
