High Court Seizes Gabriel Suswan's International Passport, Barred From Leaving Nigeria

A Federal High Court sitting in Abuja has granted bail to a former governor of Benue State, Gabriel Suswam, but ordered he be held by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, till he fulfils his bail conditions. Mr. Suswam was arraigned on Tuesday before the court on allegation of corruption.

The former governor and his commissioner for finance, Omadaki Oklobia, are being charged by the EFCC. The two defendants pleaded not guilty to the nine count charges of fraud and financial misappropriation levelled against him. The charges border on Section 15(2, 3) of the Money Laundering Act (2011).

The judge gave the conditions of the bail to include a N100 million bond, two sureties who must be senior civil servants of level 12 and above, or any person occupying a national office. He added that the international passports of the two accused be submitted to the court registrar.
