Court grants former PDP Chairman Haliru Bello & son N600m bail

The Federal High Court in Abuja has granted a N600 million bail to the former National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Dr. Haliru Bello and his son, Abba. The two are facing a 4-count criminal charge‎ bordering on alleged N300 million fraud‎.

Delivering judgement on their bail application, the presiding judge, Justice Ahmed Mohammed ordered the duo to pay N300million each as well as produce two sureties each, in like sum.

One of the persons to stand surety for the former PDP chairman must be a Director under the employment of the federal government or any of its agencies while the the son was asked to produce someone not below grade level 12 to stand surety for him.

Justice Mohammed ordered that the second surety must be an owner of landed property in Abuja the value of which must not be below N300m, adding that the title deed of such property must be verified and surrendered to the court registrar throughout the duration of the trial.

The accused persons were also asked to surrender their international passports to the court. Pending the perfection of the bail terms, the court ordered that Abba should be remanded in prison custody, saying the ex-PDP boss should remain in hospital but placed under police watch. Hearing on the fraud charges begins on February 16.

U stole 300million and u are asked to pay 600million bail. That's twice the number u stole. May God continue to punish the looters and give the government the strength to prosecute all of u. Fmr. Chairman Haliru, dnt worry, u r still going to jail even after paying that money.

The courts want to strip these thieves of all stolen money via bail and bonds. 600 Million naira? Anyway, they should recover our monies and prosecute the guilty criminals.

This is hilarious, they stole from us. Now your son will learn from the government since you didn't deem it fit to train him not to steal.

Nigeria got the worst judicial system in the world: you steal billions from public treasure, you get arraigned, use part of the stolen funds to secure your bail and life goes on.. CASE CLOSED... God will judge all of you.

Nobody asked them to pay any money. The bail granted would only be paid by the surety only when the accused jumps bail. That's why it is stated that the surety must own property valued at firstsale of 300 million. If the accuse jumps bail, and the surety fails to produce him in court, the surety will be asked to pay the said sum of 300m or go to jail.
