Today, trial judge, Justice Okon Abang, changed his earlier order that the two sureties to be provided by Metuh must be property owners in the Maitama area of Abuja only, to an order that the
two sureties must be owners of properties in any area of Abuja. He however, retained the sum of bail which he put at N400m.
In his application, counsel to Metuh, Sylvanus Tahir, told the court that the bail conditions were too stringent. He asked the court to vary the conditions to allow for property owners in any other part of the FCT to stand as sureties because Metuh has no friends or relatives with properties in Maitama….. which is a slum…..
