N1bn Bail Slammed On Maurice Iwu By Court by gabolak(m): 6:17pm On Aug 09
The bail request by a former chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) Prof Maurice Iwu over alleged fraud of N1.23bn has been set at N1bn with two sureties in like sum.

One of the sureties, according to Justice Chuka Obiozor, who ruled on the bail application on Friday, said, must own a landed property in Lagos while the other must be a professor or a civil servant not below Grade Level 16.


The judge said both sureties must furnish the court with the statement of their bank accounts, showing a minimum balance of N1bn.

The sureties are also to submit their recent passport photographs.

In addition, Iwu was ordered to deposit his passport with the Deputy Chief Registrar of the court.
The former INEC chairman will be remanded until he meets the bail condition, the judge ordered.
While moving Iwu’s bail application on Friday, his lawyer, Mr Ahmed Raji (SAN), urged the judge to admit his client to bail in liberal terms but the EFCC vehemently opposed the bail application.
The EFCC counsel, Oyedepo, told the judge that Iwu might likely interfere with the witnesses assembled to testify in the case as they were INEC officials with whom he had worked closely.

Nice one! The best way to fight corruption. If you are accused of stealing 1naira 20 kobo and charged to court, your bail should be 1 naira then you use the remaining 20 kobo to do case. grin

Great judge. We need more people like him on the bench. This is the kind of stringent bail conditions that should be imposed on those standing trial for corruption. We must handle all cases related to corruption with iron hand if we are to combat the scourge successfully.

Nice one, politicians, civil servants and politically exposed persons should be granted bail that is commensurate with the charges against them.

He maybe there for a very long time or might not.

I'm sure many owe him favours for making their political goals achievable against all odds.
