Court refuses Badeh’s bail application

04 March 2016, 18:07

Abuja - A Federal High Court in Abuja on Friday refused a bail application by a former Chief of Defense, Alex Badeh.

Justice James Tsoho, in a ruling on Badeh’a application for bail, upheld the objection by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to the effect that Badeh’s detention was on a subsisting court order.

Justice Tsoho said because there is a existing remand order by the Magistrate Court in Lagos, the court cannot give an order for the release of the applicant.

The judge noted that in the Badeh’s application for bail, there was no prayer asking the court to set aside the order of the Magistrate Court.

Badeh  had filed a suit against the EFCC for an infringement on his fundamental human right and prolonged detention.

The former Defence Chief is currently being detained by the EFCC over his involvement in the $2.1 billion arms deal popularly known as the Dasukigate.

He is also being investigated for receiving $800 000 from his finance director during his tenure as the Defence Chief.
