Judge Issues N1bn Bail For The Release Of Former INEC Chairman Maurice Iwu

The bail request by a former chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) Prof Maurice Iwu over alleged fraud of N1.23bn has been set at N1bn with two sureties in like sum.

One of the sureties, according to Justice Chuka Obiozor, who ruled on the bail application on Friday, said, must own a landed property in Lagos while the other must be a professor or a civil servant not below Grade Level 16.

The judge said both sureties must furnish the court with the statement of their bank accounts, showing a minimum balance of N1bn.

The former INEC chairman will be remanded until he meets the bail condition, the judge ordered.

While moving Iwu’s bail application on Friday, his lawyer, Mr Ahmed Raji (SAN), urged the judge to admit his client to bail in liberal terms but the EFCC vehemently opposed the bail application.

  1. Rubbish judgment u should ve just send him to jail buhari puppet judge

  2. Is this Buhari government crazy? How can a professor have 1 billion? The most vindictive human on earth is Buhari.

  3. Good one. That bail gladdens my heart and gives me hope that we still have sane people in the judiciary. Let him cough out the bail money or just continue enjoying prison until the case is concluded

  4. Lol, any such person who steps forward with that account balance will also require bail before the week runs out 😂

    1. My thought exactly. That's a bait. 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂

  5. The evil that men do...
