Kemisola Ogunniyi, the EndSARS protester who was delivered of a baby in prison custody has been granted bail by an Ondo State High Court, Sitting in Olokuta Correctional Centre, Akure.
WuzupNigeria had reported that 18-year-old Ogunniyi and three others were arrested and standing trial at the High Court for alleged arson, conspiracy, riotous assembly, stealing and malicious damage during the EndSARS protest in Akure in October 2020.
The state government had moved to secure the bail of the defendant.
At the hearing of the bail application in the court on Tuesday, the judge, Justice Omolara Adejumo granted the bail application.
She said she granted the bail application based on humanitarian grounds, and for the purpose of the christening of the baby which would take place on Wednesday, noting that the defendant had a right to be granted bail, The PUNCH reported.
The judge ruled that the defendant should be bailed with a sum of N10 million with a surety.
In reaction, the counsel for the defendant, Mr Tope Temokun, expressed satisfaction over the release of his client from the prison as well as the bail condition.
He said, “She (Ogunniyi) has been released from the prison while the bail condition would be perfected later.”
He further explained that the N10 milliion bail condition did not mean that the defendant would pay the money to the court but must have a guarantor who is worth N10milliion with evidence of tax clearance and must be residing within the jurisdiction of the court.
On the three other defendants, Temokun said their bail application would be moved later, saying, “We can do everything together today ( Tuesday).
