[BREAKING] Malabu Oil scam: High Court grants bail to Adoke, others

The High Court of the Federal Capital Territory in Abuja, on Thursday, granted bail to a former Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Mr. Mohammed Adoke (SAN), and two of his co-defendants charged with offences bordering on the controversial Malabu Oil scam.

Justice Abubakar Idris had earlier ordered the remand of the three defendants in the custody of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission on January 23, 2020, after they pleaded not guilty to the 42 counts preferred against them by the commission.

The judge had on Monday heard the separate bail applications filed by the three of the seven defendants named as defendants in the charges, before fixing Thursday for a ruling.
