Omoyele Sowore , #RevolutionNow convener and publisher of Sahara Reporters has rejected the offer made by President of Omega Fire Ministries Worldwide, Apostle Johnson Suleman, to stand as his surety.
The legal team of Sowore, speaking through his lawyer, Inibehe Effiong, told newsmen that Suleman’s offer would not be considered because he is not eligible to stand surety for the detained activist as the court insisted that the surety must be a resident of Abuja.
Effiong said Suleman’s offer cannot be considered nor accepted, adding that Suleman and Sowore had once had a public altercation, as a result, there is conflict of interest.
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
Sowore had in a report published through his platform, accused Suleman of engaging in extra-marital affairs with a woman known as Stephanie Otobo.
The activist and former Presidential candidate of the African Action Congress was arrested by the Department of State Services on August 2, 2019, for allegedly trying to overthrow the President Muhammadu Buhari government.
