Breaking! Dino Melaye Granted Bail

Eniola Awokoya

The Senator representing Kogi-West Senatorial district, Dino Melaye, has been granted bail to the tune of N10m.

The trial judge in the gun-running allegation against the embattled Senator, Justice Nasir Ajana, who ruled on the bail application before a Lokoja High Court on Wednesday, in Lokoja, based his ruling on the conviction, as submitted by the defense counsel, Chief Mike Ozekhome (SAN) that the continued incarceration of Senator Melaye will jeopardise his health condition, which he said was “deteriorating.”

He also said that there was nothing to show that the applicant would jump bail if granted.

Ajana therefore admitted Melaye to bail, with one surety for N10m.
