Justice Inyang Ekwo of the Federal High Court in Abuja has granted bail to the immediate past governor of Anambra State, Willie Obiano.

He ordered that the former governor should be restricted to the court jurisdiction.

He ordered the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, to deposit the defendant’s travel documents with the court registrar.

Ekwo then ordered the registrar to notify the Nigerian Immigration Service of the development.

The prosecution counsel, Slyvanus Tahir, SAN, had prayed the court to remand the former governor.

He subsequently adjourned the case till March 4,5,6 and 7 for continuation of trial.
