A Federal High Court sitting in Kano has granted bail to the immediate past Governor of the State, Mallam Ibrahim Shekarau.
Shekarau was arraigned alongside former minister of Foreign affairs, Aminu Wali and Mansur Ahmad for alleged criminal conspiracy and money laundering during his time at the helm of the state.
The arraignment came after the former ministers were quizzed by the officials of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, in Kano state.
Ibrahim Shekarau is accused of collecting N25 million from the N950 million logistics fund meant for the 2015 election campaigns.
A University Don and Spokesman of the former Governor and Minister of Education Sule Ya’u Sule confirmed the breakthrough on Friday, saying the Sardaunan Kano has reunited with his family after fulfilling bail conditions.
“Thursday evening at about 6.40 pm and were released immediately,” eyewitnesses said.
“It was hectic for the former minister to drive out of the EFCC premises as supporters who had had a raw deal in the hands of the security agents earlier in the day swam around his the vehicles to facilitate with him.”
