Nigeria: Court Adjusts Metuh's Bail Condition

A Federal High Court has adjusted the conditions for bail granted the spokesperson for the Peoples Democratic Party, Olisa Metuh.

Mr. Metuh, who is being prosecuted for allegedly receiving N400 million arms money, has been in detention since his arrest over three weeks ago.

A court granted him bail on a N400 million bond, and N200 million each from two sureties.

The court also said the two sureties must have properties within the Maitama area of Abuja.

On Wednesday, Justice Okon Abang, who gave the initial order, said assets from other parts of Abuja would also be accepted.

He advised Mr. Metuh to appeal if he was not satisfied with the conditions.
