A Federal Capital Territory High Court in Maitama, Abuja has granted bail to Senator representing Kogi West, Dino Melaye.

Justice Yusuf Halilu granted him bail on health ground following an application by his lawyer, Mike Ozekhome (SAN).

He held that the applicant must be strong enough to undergo trial.

Before the case was adjourned on Thursday, Justice Halilu had ordered the Nigeria Police Force to explain the reason for the continued detention of the senator who according to him had been in their custody since January 4, 2019.

He gave the order after the counsel representing Senator Melaye, Mike Ozekhome (SAN), informed the court that his client had been in custody beyond the number of days stipulated by the law.
