JUST IN: Dino Melaye Granted Bail
A High Court of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) has granted bail to Senator Dino Melaye on health grounds.
Melaye is currently being held in a police health facility in Abuja.
Justice Yusuf Halilu in his ruling ordered Dino to produce three sureties including the Clerk of the National Assembly who must produce a written undertaking to produce him in court.
The other sureties, the court ruled, must be residents of the FCT who have landed properties in Abuja.
Justice Halilu was of the view that the Senator must be healthy to stand trial.
He said since the Senator cannot be arraigned on the stretcher or on his hospital bed, he should be allowed on bail to attend to his health.
Melaye, the senator representing Kogi West in the National Assembly, who has been in police custody since January 4, approached the court for enforcement of his fundamental right.VIDEO: How Nigerian Celebrities Helped The Baby Mama 'Ministry'
