A Federal Capital Territory (FCT) High Court on Friday, 22nd January 2016, granted the National Publicity Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party, Mr Olisa Metuh bail in the sum of 300 million Naira and two sureties in like sum. Metuh is facing a seven-count charge of criminal breach of trust, corruption and money laundering.
In the ruling on Friday, the Chief Judge of the FCT High Court, Justice Ishaq Bello, stressed that the sureties must be resident in Abuja, Nigeria’s capital city. There have been mixed reactions as to how Metuh who is still being detained will meet the bail conditions. Pastor Adeboye’s son Leke is one of the Nigerians puzzled at what will happen to Metuh’s bail money. Below is what he(Leke Adeboye) shared on Facebook:
I have two questions.
1. Where does a normal man get 300 million N. That’s 1Million dollars o. As bail money
2. What happens to the bail money. Who keeps it and who uses it?
