Former Attorney Gen. Of Nigeria Adoke Fails To Meet Bail Conditions..

Former Attorney-General of the Federation, Mr Mohammed Adoke (SAN), is still in the custody of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), 24 hours after he was granted security bail.

Adoke was arraigned alongside Aliyu Abubakar, Rasky Gbinigie, Malabu oil and Gas Limited, Agip, a subsidiary of Eni, Shell Nigeria Ultra deep Limited, and Shell Nigeria Exploration Production Company Limited.

He is accused of receiving bribe worth N300 million from Aliyu over the deal for OPL 245, a charge he denied.
On  Thursday, the presiding judge, Justice Abubakar Kutigi, granted him bail in the sum of N50 million with a surety who must have a landed property in the FCT.

Aliyu, who is the second defendant, also got a N50 million bail with one surety, while Gbinigie, the third defendant, got a N10 million bail.

The judge said all sureties must be resident within the jurisdiction of the court, have landed property in the FCT, and must provide evidence of tax clearance for the last three years.

He also ordered the defendants to submit their international passports to the court and also sign an undertaking to always attend trial sessions.

However, a source at the EFCC told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), on Friday in Abuja that the former justice minister is being detained at the commission’s headquarters in the federal capital.

Acting spokesman of the anti-graft agency, Mr Tony Orilade, who confirmed the information, said that Adoke was still being held because he had not fulfilled his bail conditions.

  1. These people are really making Nigeria a zoo to the international world. Chief Justice of the Federation resigned for corruption after the disgrace. Now Minister for Justice and Attorney General of the Federation is going down for corruption. These are supposed to be the torch bearers of our judicial system. It's sickening!

  2. Just 50M and surety with landed property in Abuja and couldn't meet up bail conditions? See repercussion of chop alone.

    1. The conditions
      Vicinity landed property
      Tax clearance 3yrs

      Then the person will also be liable if he bail

      And eye can also be put into the person affairs

      Hmm na high jump
