Embattled former Senator representing Kaduna Central Senatorial district, Shehu Sani has been granted a N10m bail by a federal high court in Abuja.
Shehu Sani was granted bail after being arraigned on two-count charge of bribery on Monday January 27, following his lawyer Abdul Ibrahim’s argument of need for him to take care of his family, businesses and prepare adequately for trial.
Though EFCC’s counsel Abba Mohammed opposed the bail application, Shehu Sani was granted bail of N10m by Justice Inyang Ekwo who stated that the prosecution did not show good reasons why the defendant should not be admitted to bail.
The former lawmaker’s bail condition includes producing a surety with a landed property that is worth the bail sum, which will be verified by the court’s registrar. He is to submit his international passport to the court and must also get the permission of the court before travelling outside the country.
Justice Ekwo then adjourned the case till February 24 for commencement of trial.
