by Dolapo Adelana

The Minna High Court Wednesday has granted a former governor of Niger State, Babangida Aliyu, and his ex-chief of staff, Umar Nasko.

The duo were remanded in prison by the court Tuesday last week after the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission arraigned them on charges of corruption and fraud.

The presiding judge, Justice Aliyu Mayaki, granted them bail to the tune of N150m.
