A Federal High Court in Maiduguri, Borno State on Tuesday admitted Aisha Wakil, popularly called Mama Boko Haram, and three others to bail in the sum of N1.3 million each.
Wakil was arraigned before the court on February 25 alongside three other accused persons by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission on two counts of conspiracy and obtaining by false pretenses N42 million.
The accused persons are Tahiru Daura, Lawal Shoyade and Adamu Sani.
Delivering the ruling, Justice Jude Dagat ordered the defendants to produce two sureties each.
Dagat ordered that one of the sureties must be a substantive Director with the Borno State Civil Service and a relative of the accused persons.
The court also ordered that one of the sureties must own a fully developed landed property in Maiduguri and must deposit the tittle documents with the Registrar of the court for verification and custody.
Justice Dagat adjourned the case until May 5 for trial.
NAN reports will that the Defence Counsel, Jubril Gunda and Z.M. Umar, had on February 27 prayed the court to admit Wakil and the three accused persons to bail on grounds of failing health.
The Prosecution, however, objected the bail application by the defendants.
