A Federal High Court sitting in Abuja has adjourned hearing till Thursday, January 7, 2016, bail application by the former National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Haliru Bello Mohammed and his son, Abba.
The former Finance and Defence Minister and his son are currently standing trial over money laundering of about N300 Milllion, collected from the National Security Adviser (NSA), Col. Sambo Dasuki. The sum was out of the $2.1 Billion arms money to fight Boko Haram insurgents.
In his ruling, Justice Ahmed Mohammed ordered the Inspector General of Police (IGP), Mr. Solomon Arase, to ensure that the former PDP helmsman was monitored in the hospital, as he was wheeled to the court; remained and returned in the Kuje prison till Thursday.
The court has in the last hearing read the charges which the EFCC preferred against the ex Minister, his son and their private firm, Bam Properties. They have however pleaded not guilty to the charges.
