Shehu Sani meets bail condition, leaves EFCC custody

A former senator Shehu Sani, who was arraigned by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission has met his bail condition and left the custody of the anti-graft agency.

He was accompanied by his associates on Thursday out of the EFCC office in Wuse II Abuja.

A Federal High Court in Abuja granted Sani a N10 million bail after he was arraigned on a two-count charge of fraud.

Justice Inyang Ekwo, who granted Sani’s bail application, said the former lawmaker must produce a surety, who will sign a bond of the same amount and who must own a landed property valued at N10 within Abuja.

Justice Ekwo also ordered Sani to deposit his international passport and told him that he could only travel outside the country with the permission of the court.

The former senator allegedly collected $10,000 from Mr Dauda to bribe the acting chairman of the EFCC, Ibrahim Magu.

A count in the charge reads: “That you, Shehu Sani, on or about November 29, 2019, within the jurisdiction of this honourable court, with intent to defraud, obtained $10,000 cash from Alhaji Sani Dauda (ASD) under the false pretence that the money was meant to bribe …Magu to arrest and prosecute Abubakar Musa, which representation you knew to be false, contrary to and punishable under Section 1(1) and (3) of the Advance Fee Fraud and Other Fraud Related Offences Act, Number 14 of 2006.”
