Sowore and his co-defendant, Olawale Bakare, are standing trial on a 16-count bordering on treasonable felony and money laundering amongst other charges.
They have since pleaded not guilty and were granted bail in the sum of N100 million and N30 million respectively.
The Department of State Services (DSS) had refused to release them on bail even after they met their bail application, forcing Justice Ijeoma Ojukwu to issue a 24-hour order for their release.
Sowore was, however, rearrested on December 6 shortly after he was released on bail by the DSS over a yet to be disclosed offense.
