Farouk Lawan, Boniface Emenalo granted bail

Exactly a week after they were arrested and held in prison for collecting N93million bribe from Femi Otedola to remove his company, Zenon Oil, from the list of indicted companies, Farouk Lawan and Boniface Emenalo were this morning granted bail by an Abuja High Court.

The Judge granted the two men bail on the sum of N10 million and asked them to relinquish their international passports to the court. They are only allowed to travel out of the country with the court's permission. The case has been fixed for April 10 and 17 for hearing.

    So, what is govt plan for Otedola? Chieftancy title abi..Because Farouk and Boniface are not the only one involved on the case – the person that gave the bribe committed the highest offend. Is a pity, Farouk used to be on my role models list but he disappoints me.

    In future a bail equal to half the total sum that was stolen will be appropriate. But its still better that 27Billion theft and getting 750k as fine can you beat that!! not bail but fine wow that judge needs to be sanctioned

    Lizzy i saw them this morning,and trust me they didn't look like people that stayed inside that cell for 20seconds. Haa Naija funny sha,shocking that you'll barely notice such an important case was going on. Our corrupt leaders should be taken to the America's most sticking prison "bay" where they will eat sandwich cock which will serve as a big lesson for even the president... ha hah i bad ooo

    Mr peters, you obviously don't read or listen to the news. Farouk and boniface asked for the bribe from otedola which he reported to the secret service and they were set up which is how they were caught.

    Na wa o. Things we see in this country. Still find it hard to believe that the so-called 'Mr Integrity' got himself in dis deep mess. Surely watching this till the end. I also hope Otedola wouldn't go scott free cos both the giver and receiver of d bribe are culpable.

    Ten million naira its good for granting bail 2 dem not dat it will be paid, but if they run away their suretee will have to pay it and since their international passport has also been ceased which means they can't move an inch and on a normal day in nigerian courts the bail sum is two hundred thousand naira I think the court did this because they are public figures.
