After a month-long detention, a Federal High Court in Abuja on Monday granted ex-Senator Shehu Sani (Kaduna Central) a bail of N10 million.
Justice Inyang Ekwo, gave the ruling shortly after Sani was arraigned by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on two-count charge of bribery and advance fee fraud.

The senator was arrested and detained  by the EFCC since  December 31, 2019.
Persecondnews reports that EFCC had objected to Sani’s bail application but was dismissed by the judge in a ruling after hearing arguments  and counter-arguments by the defence and prosecution.

Justice Ekwo ordered Sani to produce a responsible citizen with a landed asset worth the N10 million bail sum as surety.

He also ordered Sani to deposit his passport with the court’s registry and directed that he must not travel out of the country without the permission of the court.

The judge also directed the court’s registry to verify the assets and title documents to be tendered as a guarantee by the surety.

He asked the court’s registry to notify in writing the Nigeria Immigration Services that the defendant’s passport was in its custody.
