Abuja - A former Chief of Defence Staff, Air Chief Marshal Alex Badeh, who was remanded in prison custody, has been released having perfected his bail conditions.
The Federal Government had arraigned Badeh on a 10-count charge bordering on alleged diversion of about N3.9 billion belonging to the Nigeria Air Force (NAF) while he served as Chief of Air Staff.
Badeh had pleaded not guilty and was consequently admitted to bail in the sum of N2 billion, with two sureties in the sum of N1 billion each.
