Senator Dino Melaye (APC, Kogi West) has finally been granted bail by a Lokoja High Court.
Delivering his ruling on the bail application on Wednesday, Justice Nasir Ajanah described the medical report of the Sen Melaye as a merit factor to grant the third bail.
The judge granted the bail in the sum of N10million with a surety whose passport would be domiciled with the court.
Senator Melaye is been charged for allegedly arming deadly criminal gangs and convening a political rally that ended with the death of at least one attendee.
The police also said they had arrested suspects who confirmed that Mr. Melaye had provided arms and financial support to them.
Mr. Melaye denied the allegations, pleaded not guilty to the charges. He alleged that his ordeal was largely because of his outspoken stance against Kogi State Governor Yahaya Bello’s misrule and impunity.
