The Rivers State High Court, today, granted bail to Hon. Farah Dagogo, the embattled former governorship aspirant of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
The bail approval came after he had spent about 60 days in detention.
The lawmaker representing Degema/Bonny Federal Constituency in the House of Representatives was arrested barely 24 hours after the state Governor, Nyesom Wike declared him wanted for alleged instigation of “thugs” to disrupt activities at the PDP state secretariat along Aba Road in Port Harcourt.
It was on basis of the allegation that he was whisked away at the screening hall of the South-South zonal office of the PDP during the governorship screening of the party in April.
Presiding Justice, Chiwendu Nwogu, in his ruling, granted the lawmaker bail with the conditions that he must produce one surety with the sum of N20 million.
Nwogu also ordered Dagogo to deposit his international passport and barred him from travelling outside the country without leave of the court pending his trial at the court.
Justice Nwogu also ruled that the surety must be a citizen of Nigeria and an indigene of Rivers State who must have a registered document of title that resides within Rivers State and Port Harcourt metropolis.
