Gun-running: Dino Melaye gets N10m bail
A Lokoja High Court presided by Justice Nasir Ajana, on Wednesday granted an application for bail in favour of Senator Dino Melaye who is being tried on the allegation of gun-running.
Melaye is representing Kogi West senatorial district in the Senate.
The judge said that his ruling was premised on the conviction as submitted by the defense counsel, Chief Mike Ozekhome, SAN, to the effect 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.
The embattled senator was not in court, as he was still on hospital admission in Abuja.
