All but one of the 48 agitators arrested by the Nigeria Police during the Yoruba Nation rally which took place in Lagos are now out on bail from the police custody.

They met the conditions set by the court on Monday, according to Maxwell Adeleye, the Communications Manager of Ilana Omo Oodua.

The protesters, including two women, were arraigned before a Yaba Chief Magistrate’s Court in Lagos for alleged unlawful protest.

The defendants, arrested on July 3 at Ojota, face a three-count charge of conspiracy, unlawful assembly, and breach of peace.

They pleaded not guilty. One of them still in detention, Tajudeen Bakare, was charged with two extra counts of murder and unlawful possession of arms.

Police Prosecutor, Adejoke Adebesin told the court that Bakare, during the protest shot a passerby, Jumoke Oyeleke.

The Police alleged that he used a Beretta pistol which was recovered from him.

Bakare was said to have driven a Jeep with Registration No. LSR 322 FK, and killed the deceased from the window of the car.

The offenses contravened Sections 411, 168(d), 223, 330, 44 (1)(2)(3)(4) of the Criminal Laws of Lagos State 2015. (Revised)

Section 330 provides seven years imprisonment for the offense of unlawful possession of arms, while 223 stipulates the death penalty for the offense of murder.
