A Kwara State Upper Court sitting in Ilorin today Monday granted the popular traditionalist, Abdullazeez Adegbola alias Tani-Olohun bail.
The presiding judge, Justice Sunday Adeniyi while delivering ruling on the bail application, moved by Tani-Olohun’s counsel, Barrister Ademola Banks, said Tani-Olohun could proceed to meet his family if he can fulfilled all the bail conditions.
He ordered Tani-Olohun to provide two sureties who have N5m each in their bank accounts with an evidence of bank statement to back up their claims.
The judge said that the sureties must be residence within the jurisdiction of the court while one of them must be a community leader in the state.
Adeniyi also ruled that the sureties must show evidence of tax payment from seven years till date and must also possess landed property within the court’s jurisdiction.
Earlier, the court had revoked the bail it granted Tani-Olohun’s accomplice, Ademola Olawoore, Oluwo Nla of Tede who failed to cause appearance at the early stage of the proceedings, issuing bench warrant against him.
The court, however, vacated the order after Oluwo Nla walked in, giving excuse to the court considered tenable.
