Sen. Misau granted bail on self-recognition


Justice Anwuli Chikere of the Federal High Court, in Abuja, on Tuesday, granted bail to Senator Isah Misau  self-recognition.

She however, ordered that the defendant should deposit his international passport with the Chief Registrar of the Court and could apply for it whenever he needed it. Chikere adjourned the matter until January 21 for hearing.

Misau, who represents Bauchi Central Senatorial District, was arraigned on an amended 10-count charge bordering on forgery and other related offences.

At the resumed hearing, the prosecuting counsel, Saleh Hadi, from the office of the Attorney-General of the Federation (AGF), informed the court of the amended charges filed. Hadi said that the amended charges had been filed and he had affixed seal as ordered by the court on the last adjourned date. He further applied for the charges to be read to the defendant to enable him take his plea.

When the charges were read to Misau, he pleaded not guilty to the amended 10-count charge preferred against him.

The defence counsel, Uchena Ogbunabo, who held brief for Paul Erokoro (SAN), immediately prayed the court to grant the defendant bail on liberal terms and in self-recognition.
