The judge equally granted bail to the second defendant, Aliyu Abubakar in the sum of N50m with two sureties who must have landed properties within the jurisdiction of the court.

Abubakar also is to deposit his international passport with the Registrar of the court.

Kutigi stressed that any breach of the bail conditions during Abubakar’s trial will lead to immediate revocation.
