A High Court sitting in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Abuja granted the senator bail.

Delivering judgment in his bail application filed by his lawyer, Mike Ozekhome (SAN), Justice Yusuf Halilu, said the bail was granted in view of Melaye’s failing health and that Melaye would have to be healthy to face trial.

The anti-Fakorede group is made up of members and leaders of the ruling party who have hinged their protest on claims that Fakore’s father had defected to the opposition All Progressive Congress (APC) and worked against the success of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), at the elections.

The group, which comprises party leaders, elders and women urge lawmakers not to screen or confirm his nomination adding that his nomination  negates the sharing arrangement by the leaders to cover the interest of all the regions and zones of the area.
