Justice Nasiru Ajanah granted Senator Melaye bail in his ruling on the application on Wednesday, based on the lawmaker’s health challenge.

The presiding judge described the medical report of the lawmaker as a merit factor to grant the bail application.

Three weeks after being held in police custody, the judge, however, ordered Melaye to provide a surety in the like sum.

He also ordered that the international passport of the surety be domiciled with the court.

Senator Melaye is being charged by the police for allegedly arming deadly criminal gangs and convening a political rally that ended with the death of at least one attendee.

Earlier, the police said they had arrested suspects who confirmed that Mr Melaye had provided arms and financial support to them.

The lawmaker has since denied the allegations and pleaded not guilty to the charges levelled against him.

He had, however, claimed that his ordeal was mainly because of his outspoken stance against the alleged impunity of the state governor.
