BREAKING: Court Grants Bail To Ex- Governor Babangida Aliyu, Ex- COS, Nasko

Babangida Aliyu

A Mina High Court in Niger State, has granted bail to former Governor of the state, Babangida Aliyu, and his former Chief of Staff, Umar Nasko.

The duo, were remanded in prison custody on April 25, after they were arrested by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), for alleged corruption.

The anti-graft agency said Mr. Aliyu and Nasko, who was also the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governorship candidate in the 2015 polls, misappropriated state funds while in office.

However, the release of the two politicians came barely a day after Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose and the National Caretaker Committee of the PDP criticized the Federal Government and the All Progressives Party (APC) of caging opposition.
