The Federal High Court sitting in Katsina has today Friday, granted bail to the embattled Katsina Ex-Governor Ibrahim Shema and adjourned his case with EFCC to 12th of June, 2018.
The judge said he granted the former Governor bail on self recognition.
It could be recalled that this morning at around 8:30am EFCC brought the Katsina Ex-Governor, Ibrahim Shema to the Federal High Court in Katsina for the continuation of his their case over alleged money laundering of N5.7bn SURE-P Funds.
It could also be recalled that the former Katsina State Governor, Ibrahim Shehu Shema was on Tuesday remanded in Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC custody on the order of the presiding judge at the Federal High Court in Katsina, Justice Babagana Ashigar.
Ashigar said the former governor should be detained in the custody of the EFCC till 27th April, 2018 when it will hear the written application for his bail.
Shema had pleaded not guilty of the 26-count charges of the alleged money laundering leveled against him just as his lead counsel, Emmanuel Ukala SAN pleaded for his bail through a written application filed on the 18th April, 2018 and later oral application which the prosecution counsel, Sam Ologunorisa objected to the application.
