109bn Fraud: Ex-AGF, Ahmed Idris Granted Bail


An Abuja High Court sitting at Maitama, has on Thursday, granted bail to the former Accountant-General of the Federation, Ahmed Idris.

Idris is standing trial for an alleged N109 billion fraud. He was last week remanded in prison pending the determination of his bail application.

Justice Adeyemi Ajayi the presiding judge, while ruling on the bail application of Idris and his co-defendants, adopted all the terms and conditions of the administrative bail the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission earlier granted him.

“In line with the due process and supremacy of the law, the defendants are still entitled to bail, irrespective of the enormity of the allegations against them.

“The EFCC did not in any of its processes, stated that the Defendants misbehaved while on administrative bail”, the judge said.
