The Federal High Court sitting Abuja has granted bail to the embattled National Publicity Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Mr. Olisa Metuh, to the tune of N400million. In a bench ruling this afternoon, trial Justice Okon Abang ordered Metuh to produce two sureties who must deposit the sum of N200m each.
The court maintained that the sureties must not only be residents in Abuja, but also owners of landed properties within the Maitama district of the FCT.
They are to submit the Certificate of Occupancy of the properties to the Chief Registrar of the court for verification, as well as submit their three years tax clearance.
According to the court, the sureties must swear to an affidavit of means and also submit two recent passport photographs.
More so, Justice Abang ordered Metuh to surrender his international passport to the Chief Registrar of the high court.
The PDP spokesman who was remanded in Kuje Prison last Friday, was brought to court Tuesday morning in handcuffs.
He was brought to court in a prison bus with registration No. PS-682-AO.
Metuh is answering to a seven-count criminal charge that was preferred against him by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC.
