Justice Suleiman Belgore of the FCT High Court in Garki has granted bail to former Minister of Aviation, Hadi Sirika, who is facing trial for alleged N19.4 billion contract fraud.

Justice Belgore granted bail to the former Minister in the sum of N100 million and required two sureties in the same amount.


ROYAL NEWS reports that Sirika is accused of abusing his office by awarding contracts to his brother’s company, Enginos Nigeria Limited.


The judge ruled that one of the sureties must possess a landed property within the jurisdiction of the court.


The court also stipulated that the former minister is not permitted to travel outside Nigeria without the court’s permission.


Furthermore, the court ruled that the second defendant, Ahmad Sirika, should be granted bail under the same terms and conditions.


The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) had arraigned Sirika, his brother, and a company Enginos Nigeria Limited, on an amended 10-count related to the offense.
