Court to Decide on Omisore’s Bail Application Friday


A Federal High Court sitting in Abuja will on Friday, July 15, rule on the bail application filed by former Deputy Governor of Osun State, Chief Iyiola Omisore, who has been in EFCC custody since July 3, 2016.

Justice Olukayode Adeniyi adjourned ruling after listening to the lawyers to Senator Omisore and the EFCC, according to Channels Television.

Mr Chris Uche (SAN), who represented Omisore, asked the court to vary the conditions of administrative bail granted to his client by the EFCC or in the alternative grant him a fresh bail pending when the anti-graft agency is ready to charge him to court.

However, counsel to the EFCC, Mr Takon Ndifom, asked the court to dismiss the application for lack of merit, because Omisore was lawfully arrested and detained with a court order.

He added that the anti-graft agency was still investigating suspicious transfers from the Office of the National Security Adviser and the National Assembly.

Omisore was Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate in the August 9, 2014 governorship election in Osun State. He lost the election to Governor Rauf Aregbesola of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
