    Chai! Nigerians and sensational ways of reporting. Is the bail not just the networth of 2 people @ 300m each?
    Anyone with landed property within Abuja class zone will readily qualify.
    The current bail granted just proved Nigeria judiciary still has a long way to go! The Judge should obviously have insisted on EFCC consolidating it’s charges against Mr. Metuh before a single court than go ahead to entertain the matter.
