Senator Dino Melaye, representing Kogi West has been granted bail by a Lokoja High Court, Kogi State on Wednesday.

The trial judge, Justice Nasir Ajana in the gun-running allegation against the Senator ruled on the bail application.

He based his ruling on the conviction as submitted by the defense counsel, Chief Mike Ozekhome (SAN) to the effect that the continued incarceration of Senator Melaye will jeopardise his health condition.

Ozekhome said  that Melaye’s health has been “deteriorating since he was in police custody.

He also said that there was nothing to show that the applicant would jump bail if granted.

Ajana therefore admitted Melaye to bail, with one surety for N10m.
