Ife clash: Court grants Oba Ademiluyi, other suspects bail

Oba Ademola Ademiluyi, Pastor Taiwo Fakowajo and four other suspects on trial in connection with the Ile-Ife, Osun State, clash of March 8, were granted bail on Friday by Justice Kudirat Akano of Osun State High Court.

She granted their bail application in her ruling at the resumed heating of the matter in on Friday.

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

Their counsel, 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 in prison custody since April 28 when the judge ordered that they be remanded.

The suspects were in police custody shortly after the clash and they have been in one custody or another since then.

The suspects are still in court and the conditions of N5 million each and a surety of a level 14 office or a monarch are expected to be met.
