The Osun State Coordinator of the #RevolutionNow protest, Olawale Bakare, popularly known as Mandate, who was arrested last Wednesday, has been released.
Bakare’s lawyer, Mr Alfred Adegoke, who shared news of his release with our correspondent on Sunday, also said the three others detained for participating in the protest had also been allowed to go home.
Bakare and six other protesters were arrested on Wednesday in Osogbo by operatives of the Department of State Services during a protest organised by the movement.
Three out of the protesters were, however, released last Thursday to their parents, while Bakare and the others were held over their inability to bring parents or guardians to stand for them.
Adegoke gave the names of those released on Thursday as Samuel Olowolafe, Gift Erupke and Martins Jesuloni.
The lawyer told nesmen that his client was released to him on Sunday afternoon.
Adegoke said, “All of them have been released, including Olawale Bakare. Others were released to their parents or guardians, but I stood for Bakare, because his parents died a long time ago. I read the bail bond and the main condition given was that he should not cause any trouble or act against the public peace.
“Apart from the three of them that were released last Thursday, others in the custody of the DSS have all been released.”
