(1) Treason (2) Cyberstalking (3) Money Laundering
Sowore laughed when the count of Money laundering was read. He said he doesn’t have a UBA account and that he doesn’t understand what the prosecutor is up to.
He had also reacted to the first count saying that he had been arrested on 3rd of August and does not understand what is meant by “staging protest to overthrow the president on 5th of August” meant.
The prosecution asked the court to allow Sowore be returned to detention as trial continues but Defense counsel objected that it was not right, since the defendants had been held in custody for several days already and the DSS said their investigation had been concluded.
He also argued that the prosecution has no witness for their claims at moment and would not be fair to continue holding the defendants.
Judge asked the defense counsel to file another formal application for bail.
