Reacting via her Twitter handle on Friday, the former minister said: 1. Hopefully, the DSS under the supervision of the Presidency will honor this Bail and release them
2.What kind of Bail of N150m is this? Is the idea to place a steep condition that @YeleSowore cannot meet?
3. What a shame @NGRPresident . What a BIG shame to repress your citizen.
