Ile-Ife crisis: Monarch, pastor, others granted N5m bail each

A High Court in Osun State has granted the bail application by Oba Ademola Ademiluyi, Pastor Taiwo Fakowajo and four other suspects arrested in connection with the March 8 Ile-Ife clash.

The suspects were arrested following a clash between Hausa and Yoruba which left about 46 persons dead.

Justice Kudirat Akano granted their bail application in her ruling at the resumed sitting of the matter in on Friday.

Lawyer to the accused persons, Mr. Wale Olawoyin and Police counsel, Simon Lough had argued the bail on Wednesday but the judge granted the formal application which was filed in May.

The suspects have been kept in prison custody since April 28 when the judge ordered that they be remanded.

The suspects were still remanded in prison pending meeting the conditions of N5million each and a surety by a level 14 officer or a traditional ruler.
