The Federal High Court sitting in Kaduna State on Wednesday granted bail to the former governor of Kaduna State, Ramalan Yero and three others standing trial over alleged money laundering.
Yero was arraigned alongside a former minister, Nuhu Wya, ex-PDP chairman in the state, Abubakar Gaya-Haruna, and former secretary to the state government, Hamza Ishaq.
They were arraigned by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission on a four-count bordering on laundering over N700 million in 2015.
The News Agency of Nigeria reports that when the case came up on May 30, all the four defendants had pleaded not guilty to the charges.
The court had remanded them in prison custody and fixed today to consider their application for bail.
