Abuja—Justice Anwuli Chikere of the Federal High Court in Abuja, yesterday, granted bail to Senator Isah Misau on self-recognition.
She, however, ordered that the defendant should deposit his international passport with the Chief Registrar of the Court and can apply whenever he needs it, then adjourned the matter until January 21 for hearing.
Misau, who represents Bauchi central senatorial district, was arraigned on an amended 10-count charge bordering on forgery and other related offences.
At the resumed hearing, the prosecuting counsel, Mr. Saleh Hadi, from the office of the Attorney-General of the Federation, AGF, informed the court of the amended charges filed.
