Suretyship: Omoyele Sowore Throws Out Apostle Johnson Suleman's Offer

ABUJA,  NIGERIA - A possible offer by the President, Omega Fire Ministries Worldwide, Apostle Johnson Suleman, to stand surety for the detained activist and Publisher of Sahara Reporters, Omoyele Sowore, has been refused by the legal team of Omoyele Sowore. 

It would be recalled that Apostle Johnson Suleman had in a tweet on Monday said though Sowore had hurt many people in the past — including Suleman himself — he is of the opinion that Sowore should not be allowed to “rot where he is.”

But one of Omoyele Sowore's lawyer, Inibehe Effiong, stated that Apostle Johnson Suleman was not eligible to stand surety for the detained Omoyele Sowore. 

Inibehe Effiong, said: “His (Suleman’s) offer cannot be considered, let alone accepted. 

"The man who is making the offer is on record of having had a public altercation with Sowore. 

"So, there will be no basis for Sowore to consider it.

“The court stated that the surety must be resident in Abuja and the last time I checked, he was not resident in Abuja. 

"So, I am not sure he is eligible to stand surety for him. So there is no way Sowore can accept such an offer.

“So, we are turning it down and we are not even considering it. 

"The way the Federal Government politicised the matter, made it difficult for the bail conditions to be met. But we are in the process of perfecting the bail.”

Omoyele Sowore, who is the Convener of #RevolutionNow, was arrested by the Department of State Services on August 2, 2019, for allegedly trying to overthrow the President Muhammadu Buhari government.
