Senator Ali Ndume released from prison

 Borno Senator, Ali Ndume, has been granted bail by Justice Okon Abang of the Federal High Court in Abuja.

He was remanded in prison since Monday, November 23 following his failure to produce Abdulrasheed Maina in court.

The senator stood as surety for the former Chairman, defunct Pension Reformed Task Team (PRTT).

In a ruling delivered on Friday morning November 27, Justice Abang said he chose to grant the senator bail based on his record of good behaviour before the court. As part of the bail conditions, the Judge ordered the senator to produce one surety who must be a resident of Abuja and present evidence of ownership of property anywhere in Abuja.

 He also said the surety must also depose to an affidavit of means to indicate his readiness to forfeit the bail guaranty should the senator jump bail. He also ordered the senator to deposit his passport with the Chief Registrar of the court.

He also ordered the lawmaker to file an undertaking that he would compile records of appeal and transmit it to the Court of Appeal within 10 days.
