Following the arraignment of a former senator representing Kaduna Central, Shehu Sani a Federal High Court in Abuja has granted him bail in the sum of N 10
Naija Center had earlier reported that the EFCC arraigned Shehu Sani at an Abuja High court
while ruling on the bail, the judge, Justice Inyang Ekwo, on Monday granted him bail shortly after he was arraigned by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission on two counts of bribery and advance fee fraud.
The right activist turned lawmaker was produced in court for the first time since his arrest and detention by the EFCC on December 31, 2019 .
Justice Ekwo dismissed EFCC ‘ s opposition to Sani ‘ s bail application in a ruling he delivered after hearing argument and counter-arguments canvassed by the defence and prosecution teams.
The Justice Ekwo ordered him to produce a responsible citizen with a landed asset worth the N 10m bail sum as surety.
He also ordered the defendant to deposit his passport with the court ‘ s registry and directed that he must not travel out of the country without the express permission of the court.
The judge, however, then adjourned trial till February 24, 25 and 26.
