S*xually Recklessness & Corruption: Senator who accused IG arraigned in Abuja

Senator Isah Misau was on Thursday arraigned before a High Court in the FCT, for making “injurious falsehood” against the Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris and the Nigerian Police Force.

The senator, who was arraigned on a 5-count charge, pleaded not guilty before Justice Ishaq Bello, the Chief Judge, and was granted bail to the tune of N5million with two sureties in like sum.

It was gathered that after the charges were read to him, the Senator moved an application through his counsel, Godwin Obla (SAN), to be granted bail on self-recognizance.

He told the court that he would be available to defend allegations made against him. In addition, Misua told the court that he appeared before the court voluntarily to face the charges.

The Director of Public Prosecution, Salihu Bakun who represented FG, said he was not opposed to the bail request. Justice Bello granted the bail application, even as he fixed November 28 for trial.
