A Federal High Court in Abuja has granted N100million bail to former Head of Service of the Federation (HOSF), Mrs. Winifred Oyo-Ita, following her arraignment on Monday on charges of money laundering, fraud, among others.
Ita-Oyo was arraigned before Justice Taiwo Taiwo on an 18-count charge. She was arraigned with two of her former aides – Garba Umar and Ubong Okon Effiok.
Upon their arraignment, the three pleaded not guilty, while not guilty plea was equally recorded for six companies charged with them.
In a ruling a moment ago, Justice Taiwo granted Oyo-Ita bail at N100m, while Umar and Effiok got bail at N50m each.
Justice Taiwo released them to their lawyer, with a condition that they must report at the office of the prosecuting agency, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) for the next seven days until they meet the bail conditions.
The judge warned that they will be remanded in custody should fail to meet the bail conditions at the expiration of the seven days.
