Atiku's Son-in-law Granted 20million Bail

By - - [ Matters Arising ]

Atiku's son-in-law, Abdullahi Babalele, with his brother, Erhunse Giwa-Osagie, were charged to court by the EFCC for money laundering and after several trials and court appearances, they were granted a 20 million naira bail with one surety each.

In the charge against Babalele, the EFCC alleged that he had on February 20, 2019, procured and aided one Bashir Mohammed to make a cash payment of the sum of $140,000, without going through a financial institution.

The anti-graft agency also alleged that Osagie brothers were also alleged to have on February 12, 2019, aided each other and made a cash payment of $2 million, without going through the financial institutions.

At the resumed hearing of the motion for bail, yesterday, counsel to Babalele, Chief Mike Ozekhome, SAN, urged the court to admit his client to bail in the most liberal terms, after citing several authorities to support his submission.

Similarly, lawyers to the Osagie brothers, Ahmed Raji and Norrison Quakers, both SANs, pleaded with the court to admit their clients to bail on self-recognition, saying that the first defendant, Giwa-Osagie, is a senior member of the Bar.

The court ordered that Atiku’s son-in-law is to be remanded in custody of the EFCC pending the perfection of his bail conditions, while the Osagie brothers should be in the custody of their counsel for 14 days to fulfil the bail conditions.

The case was adjourned till October 8, for trial.

 

What do you think might happen next? Do you think they are supposed to be granted bail after such actions?

Granting them bail does not imply they are set free. Let the trial continue until the truth is known.

I think the Court do what it thinks it's right in accordance with the Constitution. They should make sure justice prevail at the end of the day.

Justice must be practiced in this nation. Imagine leaders of tomorrow. They shouldn't be granted bail just because they're president's or governor's sons and daughters. The needful must be done for them to know they committed such grave offence. They should learn their lessons and not to think they can go away with such act. Yet they will say Nigeria is corrupt. I wonder when we will do the needful in this country. Money looters, crimes and voilence partakers shouldn't go scort free .
