Court grants ex-NNPC boss, Yakubu, request to travel abroad

A Federal High Court in Abuja on Wednesday granted leave to a former Group Managing Director of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, Andrew Yakubu, to travel to the United Kingdom for three weeks to enable him to continue his medical treatment.

Yakubu’s application was not opposed by the prosecuting counsel, Mr Ben Ikani, but he urged the court to release the passport to the defendant’s lawyer, Mr Ahmed Raji (SAN).
