Senator Dino Melaye has been granted bail in the sum of N10million by the Kogi State High Court sitting in Lokoja, the state capital.
In a sitting Wednesday, Justice Nasiru Ajanah said he was granting melaye bail based on his health challenge.
The judge gave a condition that the embattled lawmaker must provide a surety in the like sum to perfect the bail condition.
Melaye has been receiving treatment at the National Hospital, Abuja after injuries sustained in a scuffle with the police in the aftermath of his arrest last month.
The APC Senator survived an impeachment scare from his Kogi West senatorial district, but continues to face charges of criminal conspiracy after being fingered as the sponsor of a group of bandits terrorising the state.
