Reprieve came for the embattled Senator representing Kogi West in the national assembly, Dino Melaye as the Kogi State High Court in Lokoja on Thursday granted bail.

Melaye is standing trial on gun-running allegation.

Justice Nasir Ajana gave the ruling based on an application by the defence counsel, Chief Mike Ozekhome.

Ajana admitted Melaye to bail to the sum of N10 million, with one surety in the like sum.

Ozekhome argued that the continued incarceration of Senator Melaye would jeopardise his health condition, which he said was “deteriorating.”

Melaye, who is still receiving treatment in hospital at Abuja was not in court on Thursday.
