A Kogi State High Court in Lokoja has granted bail to the Senator representing Kogi West, Dino Melaye, who is standing trial on gun-running allegation.
The News Agency of Nigeria reports that Justice Nasir Ajana gave the ruling based on an application by the defence counsel, Chief Mike Ozekhome.
Ajana admitted Melaye to bail to the sum of N10 million, with one surety in the like sum.
Ozekhome argued that the continued incarceration of Senator Melaye would jeopardise his health condition, which he said was “deteriorating.”
Melaye, however, was not in court as he is still receiving treatment in hospital.
