Senator Dino Melaye has been granted the bail application by trial judge Justice Nasir Ajana. Ajana ruled on the bail application before a Lokoja High Court on Thursday (today) in Lokoja, and based his ruling on the conviction as submitted by the defense counsel, Chief Mike Ozekhome (SAN) to the effect that the continued incarceration of Senator Melaye will jeopardise his health condition, which he said was “deteriorating.”
Some Nigerians took to Twitter to react to Melaye’s bail grant. See what some of them wrote:
Sen. Dino Melaye granted bail.
Now that Malaye had regained freedom through bail, is he going back to the hospital or his house?

Maryam Sanda’s trial has been adjourned yet again. Senator Dino Melaye has been granted a N10mil bail on the grounds of health issues. Just have money in this country and you’ll be alright.
