Hey there, middle schoolers! We have some news for you. A court in Kwara State recently made a decision about a person named Tani Olohun. Let’s find out what happened!
So, this person named Tani Olohun is an activist who follows a traditional religion called Isese. They wanted to be released on bail, which means they would be allowed to leave jail while they wait for their trial. But guess what? The court said no to their bail application. The court is worried that if Tani Olohun is let out of jail, they might not come back for their trial. That’s why they said no.
Here’s another interesting thing. The police in Kwara State found out that the warrant used to arrest Tani Olohun was actually fake! Can you believe it? The police didn’t even know which court issued the warrant. It’s all very confusing.
A human rights activist named Omoyele Sowore also talked about this situation. He said that the police arrested Tani Olohun with a fake warrant. He also said that the police want to prosecute Tani Olohun without involving the Director of Public Prosecutions. That’s not fair, right?
So, Tani Olohun was taken to court and the judge decided to keep them in custody until October 5. But when the police were asked which court issued the warrant, they didn’t know. It’s all very strange.
Lastly, it was reported that Tani Olohun’s family and other activists were not allowed to visit them in jail. That must be really tough for Tani Olohun and their loved ones.
That’s all the information we have for now, middle schoolers. It seems like Tani Olohun is facing some challenges with the court and the police. We’ll have to wait and see what happens next. Stay tuned!
