The judge who started on the side of Bright Chimezie, read the previous debates that included all the reports that led to Bright's arrest, the jurisdiction and how a contempt court in Uyo previously granted unconditional release. After all, she ruled in favor of all of them with conditions associated with it, which includes that those that appear as insurance must appear with a bail of 10 million naira each. Also that the inspector general of the police must know the whereabouts of each of the accused. The conditions are also that they are not allowed to attend any demonstration or public gathering, they must not travel abroad without court orders and they must refrain from any type of press briefing.

The accused persons granted bail are Benjamin Mmaduagwu, David Nwawuisi, Bright Chiemezie and Chidiebere Onwudiwe.
