Nigeria: Court grants bail to Senator Dino Melaye Updated for 2021


Updated: February 25, 2021

A Nigerian court has granted bail to Senator Dino Melaye, a controversial senator who was brought to court recently on a stretcher.

The Kogi state high court in Lokoja granted bail to the lawmaker representing Kogi west senatorial district. The bail was put at N10 million.

Justice Nasiru Ajanah granted bail to Melaye because of his health challenges following an application by the lawmaker.

The judge described the medical report as serious enough to merit bail. He was asked to provide a surety and release his international passport to the court.

Senator Melaye has been charged by the police for allegedly arming criminal gangs and convening a political rally that left one attendee dead. He had denied all the charges and said he was being targeted because of his political views and affiliations.
