Badeh yet to meet bail conditions

14 March 2016, 15:09

Abuja - Former Chief of Defence Staff, Air Chief Marshal Alex Badeh, is still in Kuje prison after failing to meet the bail conditions slammed on him by a Federal High Court.

The ex-CDS, who was granted bail by Justice Okon Abang of the Federal High Court, Abuja last Thursday, following arraignment for alleged money laundering, could not immediately meet the bail conditions in order to leave the prison.

Among other conditions, he was to produce two sureties who could pay the sum of N1 billion each, have landed properties in the FCT and provide evidence of three years tax payment.

Prisons sources said that the former CDS was still with them, having been unable to perfect the bail conditions outlined by Justice Okon Abang of the Federal High Court, Abuja and he has also refused to eat the food given to other inmates, preferring food from home.

Badeh was remanded in prison custody on March 7 but admitted to bail on March 10 by Justice Okon Abang of the Federal High Court, Abuja, following his arraignment along with a company, Iyalikam Nigeria Limited, on 10 counts of money laundering.
