Blogger allegedly arrested on the order of Gov. Amosun released from police custody
The Chief Magistrate Anthony Araba of the Magistrate court in Isabo, Abeokuta today finally signed the bail bond of the arraigned blogger, Emmanuel Ojo Adediran, who was arrested over the weekend over a Facebook post alleging that governor Amosun's wife was involved in money laundering in London. At around 3:00pm, Ojo was released from the remand prison to his team of lawyers.
His release however didn't come without an event. The counsel to the Nigeria Police approached the court to request that his bail bond should not be signed as the police isn't sure of the sureties provided by the defendant even after confirming the authenticity of the properties presented.
Magistrate Anthony however ruled in favour of the defendant stating that he can 'no longer be pushed around'.
