The #FixTheCountry Movement has confirmed the release from Police custody, of its lead convener, Oliver Barker-Vormawor.
This comes 24 hours after he was granted a ¢2 million bail by a Tema High Court on Wednesday, March 16.
Mr Barker-Vormawor’s bail condition included providing two sureties; one of whom should deposit documents to his landed property in execution of the bail.
The activist should have spent last night at home but for a development that the Lands Commission was yet to confirm some of the landed properties requested as part of his bail conditions.

Speaking on Asempa FM’s Ekosiisen, a member of the group, Felicity Nelson explained that his departure from police custody has eventually been finalised.
“He was released a few minutes ago,” she told Philip Osei Bonsu on Thursday.
The activist is facing Treason Felony charges after a social media post in which he threatened a coup.
He is also required to report to the police once a week.
On February 10, Mr Barker-Vormawor took to social media to threaten a coup following pictures emerging from the Majority Leader’s 65th birthday bash showing an ‘E-levy’-designed cake.
He posted, “If this E-Levy passes after this cake bullshit, I will do the coup myself. Useless Army!”
In a subsequent post, he explained the context in which he used the word, coup.
He was arrested on February 11 at the Kotoka International Airport, upon arriving from the United Kingdom.
