Adegoke also disclosed that three others that took part in the protest had also been released.

Recall that Bakare and six other protesters were arrested on Wednesday in Osogbo by the operatives of the Department of State Services (DSS), during a protest organised by the movement.

However, three out of the protesters were released last Thursday to their parents, while Bakare and others were held over their inability to bring a parent or guardian, who could stand for them.

Meanwhile, Adegoke gave the names of those released on Thursday as; Samuel Olowolafe, Gift Erupke, and Martins Jesuloni.

Adegoke stated, “All of them have been released including Olawale Bakare. Others were released to their parents or guardians.

“But I stood for Bakare because his parents died a long time ago. I read the bail bond and the main condition given was that the Bakare should not cause any trouble or act against public peace.

“Apart from the three of them that were released last Thursday, others in the custody of DSS have been released too.”
