‎Yusuf Haliru, justice of the federal capital territory (FCT) high court, has granted Senate President Bukola Saraki bail.

He also granted bail to Ike Ekweremadu, deputy senate president, and two other accused persons — Salisu Maikasuwa, former clerk of the national assembly, and Benedict Efeturi, deputy clerk of the legislature.

‎The judge held that the essence of bail was to enable an accused person to stand trial.

He also said that accused persons had not been proved guilty, hence the need to release them on bail.
