Federal Ministry of Education Releases 2018 Admission List for Unity Schools



Justice Anwuli Chikere of the Federal High Court in Abuja on Tuesday granted bail to Senator Isah Misau on self-recognition. She, however, ordered that the defendant should deposit his international passport with the Chief Registrar of the Court and can apply whenever he needs it.

Justice Chikere adjourned the matter until Jan. 21 for hearing. Misau who represents Bauchi Central Senatorial District was arraigned on an amended 10-count charge bordering on forgery and other related offences.

At the resumed hearing, the prosecuting counsel, Mr Saleh Hadi, from the office of the Attorney-General of the Federation(AGF), informed the court of the amended charges filed. Hadi said that the amended charges had been filed and he had affixed seal as ordered by the court on the last adjourned date.

He further applied for the charges to be read to the defendant to enable him to take his plea. When the charges were read to Misau, he pleaded not guilty to the amended 10-count charge preferred against him.

The defence counsel, Uchenna Ogbunabo, who held brief for Mr Paul Erokoro (SAN), immediately prayed the court to grant the defendant bail on liberal terms and in self-recognition. The request was not opposed by the prosecutor.
