Controversial Senator representing Kogi West in the National Assembly, Dino Melaye who is currently held in the Department of State Security Services (DSS) medical facility, has been granted bail by a High Court of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) in Maitama, Abuja.
The Senator’s lawyer Mike Ozekhome urged (SAN) Justice Yusuf Halilu to grant bail to Melaye on health ground.
Justice Halilu was of the view the Senator must be healthy to stand trial.
He said since the Senator cannot be arraigned on the stretcher or on his hospital bed, he should be allowed on bail to attend to his health.
The judge asked him to produce three sureties, one of who must be the Clerk of the National Assembly, who must undertake to produce him when he is to be arraigned in respect of a charge already filed against him.
The judge said the other two sureties must be owners of properties within the Abuja metropolis.
