Chief Magistrate Court in Wuse Zone 2, Abuja, on Tuesday adjourned till Friday the ruling on the bail applications by the publisher of Sahara Reporters, Omoyele Sowore, and four others charged with public disturbance, among others.

In a ruling, Magistrate Mabel Segun-Bello ordered that Sowore and his co-defendants – Juwon Sanyaolu, Peter Williams, Damilare Adenola, and Emmanuel Bulus – be transferred from Kuje Correctional Centre to the Force Criminal Investigation Department, FCID, at Garki Area 10, Abuja.

Law Reporters had earlier reported that they were arraigned on Monday on a three-count charge by the Nigeria Police Force, following which the court ordered that they be remanded in Kuje prison.

Sowore, who arrived the court in handcuffs, had complained about degrading treatment he and his co-accused were allegedly subjected to at the Kuje Correctional Centre.

He told the court that the prison authorities denied them access to medical treatment, food and water.

Following his complaint, aside from changing their place of remand, the Magistrate ordered the police to provide the third defendant, Adenola, who is a Law student of the University of Abuja, with internet facilities and writing materials to enable him to prepare for his examination.

The Magistrate made the orders after entertaining arguments from prosecution lawyer, Adama Musa, and defence lawyer, Marshal Abubakar.
