- Popular cleric, Apostle Suleman, says that he is considering standing bail for Sowore
- The cleric said he is considering doing this even though Sowore had hurt him in the past
- Meanwhile, some followers are asking Suleman not to attempt standing bail for the activist, while others are asking him to go all the way and help him
Apostle Suleman has declared that he is considering standing bail for Omoyele Sowore, detained RevolutionNow activist and publisher of Sahara Reporters.
The cleric disclosed this in a post on his Twitter handle on Monday, November 4.
Meanwhile, the announcement has generated different reactions on the cleric's wall. While many are asking Suleman not attempt standing bail for the Nigerian activist, some are asking him to go all the way and help Sowore secure bail.
In his reaction, a Twitter user who goes by the name Mr Fix asked the cleric to allow others do it.
"Sir, you're the envy of alot of people, doing this may give them more opportunities to put you in a hot seat....There are consistencies for the things we do. Let someone else stand in for him," he said.
On his part, Evang Richard Jonathan wrote: "Daddy it's political and i believe u ve already stood for him by virtue of publicity. So it will be wise to get some also from the political sector that will do that while u stand behind them."
According to Twitter user, Newbreed, standing surety for Sowore is not a good idea.
"Thank you sir...but I don't think it ok for you to stand bail for him. They will use it tomorrow to fight you. I remember seeing a picture of papa Ayo and someone. They said He was the one sponsoring him," he said.

Meanwhile, Legit.ng had reported that human rights lawyer and activist, Chief Femi Falana, SAN, expressed concern over the bail conditions imposed on his client, Sowore.
Falana said he is worried that the bail condition if met, would confine the Sahara Reporters publisher to a specific part of the country.
