Kogi State High Court in Lokoja Wednesday granted bail to Senator representing Kogi West, Dino Melaye, who is standing trial on gun-running allegation.
Justice Nasir Ajana gave the ruling based on an application by the defence counsel, Chief Mike Ozekhome.
Ajana admitted Melaye to bail in the sum of N10 million with one surety in like sum.
Ozekhome argued that the continued incarceration of Senator Melaye would jeopardise his health condition, which he said was â€œdeteriorating.â€
Melaye, however, was not in court as he is still receiving treatment in a hospital. (NAN)
