N4.9bn fraud: Ex-minister gets permission to treat cancer in US

The Federal High Court in Lagos on Tuesday granted permission to a former Minister of State for Finance, Nenadi Usman, to travel to the United States of America for breast cancer treatment.

Justice Rilwan Aikawa ordered the release of her passport to her to enable her to embark on the trip on December 18.

The judge directed Usman, who is being prosecuted for an alleged fraud of N4.9bn, to ensure that she returns to the country and submits her passport to the Deputy Registrar of the court on or before January 31, 2018.

Justice Aikawa stressed that her failure to comply with the court’s directive would attract sanction to her and her sureties.

Usman had, in an application filed through her counsel, Mr. Ferdinand Orbih (SAN), prayed for a 45-day permission to travel out, assuring that she would not jump bail.
