Justice Muazu granted bail to Ngozi in the sum of N30million and a surety in like sum.

The surety must have a landed property within Abuja Municipal Area Council with original document submitted to the court.

Ngozi was ordered to deposit her International passport. The matter was adjourned until September 17.
