Former Chief of Defence Staff, Alex Badeh has been released after meeting his bail conditions.
He was granted bail by Justice Okon Abang on March 10, 2016 to the tune of N2billion with two sureties in the sum of N1billion each, but remained in detention until Thursday, March 24, when he met his bail terms.
Badeh is facing trial for the misappropriation of N1.1 billion meant for the Nigeria Airforce and also for his involvement in the $2.1 billion arms deal scandal.
As part of his bail conditions, the two sureties must have properties in Abuja, and must be ready to deposit the Certificate of Occupancy (C of O) during the period of Badeh’s trial.
Justice Abang also directed the Chief Registrar of the court to verify the authenticity of the C of O and value of the property with the Federal Capital Territory Development Administration (FCTDA).
