Defendant granted bail in trial of Kogi lecturer



Justice Gabriel Kolawole of the Federal High Court, Abuja, on Thursday granted bail to Musa Umar, standing trial alongside Mohammed Yunus, a lecturer at Kogi State University over alleged terrorism.

Mohammed Yunus and Salami Abdullah had earlier been granted bail by the trial judge.

At the resumed hearing, the prosecuting counsel, A. Adewunmi, informed the court of the application made by Umar seeking for bail on health grounds.

He said that the prosecution did not oppose the bail on the grounds that it is only someone who is alive that would be able to stand trial.

In view of the prosecution’s disposition, the court granted the defendant bail with two sureties, in addition to a bail bond of N10 million each.
