A Federal High Court in Abuja has granted former Governor Sule Lamido of Jigawa State, and his two sons, bail.
A new judge, Gabriel Kolawole, said the bail was granted based on self-recognition of Mr. Lamido as a former of Jigawa State.
Mr. Lamido, his two sons and one other accused person, Abubakar Wada, were admitted to a N25 million bail bond each, in addition to a requirement that they submit their travel passport to the court.
The court also directed that they provide two sureties each, one of which must be a civil servant of grade level 16 or retired as such, or a businessman who owns a landed property not worth less that N75 million in Abuja or Jigawa state.
The sureties must also provide two recent passport photographs.
