A former governor of Imo, Ikedioha Ohakim, was on Wednesday, November 11, arraigned before a high court in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) for allegedly giving false information.
Ohakim was sued on a three-count charge before the court in Abuja by Inspector-General of Police (IGP) Mohammed Adamu.
However, following the former governor's not-guilty plea, the presiding judge, Justice Samira Bature, granted him bail to the tune of N10 million, Nigerian Tribune reports.
The bail was issued as an answer to the motion moved by Ohakim's lawyer, K.C.O Njemanze, who claimed that the charges against his client is indeed bailable, a position opposed vehemently by the prosecuting counsel, Stanley Nwodo.
Earlier, Ohakim was being prosecuted by the police for allegedly using the name of the minister of works and housing, Babatunde Fashola, to defraud unsuspecting Nigerians.
The police in a suit filed at the FCT high court also accused the former governor of false information.
The police also alleged that the former governor claimed that Fashola was the owner of a purported land situated at Ikeja, Lagos state.
In other news, the former governor's daughter, Adamma Ohakim, shared her thoughts after she discovered how gender roles were being taught at her son's school.
Ohakim's daughter who revealed how she decided to join her son in his online class, said the syllabus needed to be adjusted. She shared a screenshot of a passage that spoke about men working while women managed domestic affairs of the home.
According to her, children need to know that women can do much more than just cooking and cleaning.
