NEWS: Dino Melaye Granted Bail

An FCT High Court sitting in Maitama has granted bail to the senator representing Kogi West senatorial district, Dino Melaye.

The presiding judge, Justice Halilu, granted Melaye bail on Friday on the grounds of ill health, pending when he will be arraigned by the police in a competent court of law.
At an earlier hearing on Thursday, Justice Halilu had ordered the Nigeria Police Force to explain the reason for the continued detention of the senator who according to him had been in their custody since January 4, 2019.
He gave the order after the counsel representing Senator Melaye, Mike Ozekhome (SAN), informed the court that his client had been in custody beyond the number of days stipulated by the law.
