The embattled lawmaker representing Kogi West senatorial district at the Senate, Dino Melaye, has met his bail conditions and has regained his freedom.
The Cable reports that Melaye, who regained freedom after two weeks in detention, was granted bail on Friday, January 18, by a high court in Abuja.
Legit.ng gathers that the lawmaker was granted bail on health grounds by Justice Yusuf Halilu, who said Senator Melaye should be allowed to attend to his health.
Melaye was ordered by the judge to provide three sureties who reside and have properties in Abuja. According to Halilu, one of the sureties must be the clerk of the National Assembly who would provide a letter attesting that Melaye would always be present in court for trial.
Upon meeting his bail condition, Senator Melaye filed a suit against the inspector general of police. The senator is seeking an order restraining the police not to arrest him.
