Willie Obiano, the immediate past governor of Anambra State, has been granted bail by Justice Inyang Ekwo of the Federal High Court in Abuja.
He gave the order to limit the former governor to the court’s jurisdiction.
He gave the order for the defendant’s travel documents to be deposited with the court registrar by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission.
Ekwo then gave the registrar instructions to report the development to the Nigerian Immigration Service.
Slyvanus Tahir, SAN, the prosecution’s attorney, had asked the court to remand the former governor.
He then postponed the case until March 4, 5, 6, and 7 in order to continue the trial.
