BREAKING: Nigerian Senator Ali Ndume Granted Bail
Reports reaching us indicate that Borno South Senator, Ali Ndume has been granted bail.
He was granted bail by Justice Okon Abang of the Federal High Court in Abuja after he was detained in prison for some days.
He was detained over his suretyship for Abdulrasheed Maina who is believed to have jumped bail. Giving his ruling at the recent court hearing, Justice Abang said he chose to grant the senator bail based on his record of good behaviour before the court.
His bail condition involves one surety who must be a resident of Abuja and this surety must present evidence of ownership of a property anywhere in Abuja.
The surety must also depose to an affidavit of means to indicate his readiness to forfeit the bail guaranty should the senator jump bail.
The senator has also been asked to deposit his passport with the Chief Registrar of the court and in addition, the senator is also ordered to an undertaking that he would compile records of appeal and transmit it to the Court of Appeal within 10 days.
