Corruption Charges: Indicted Nenadi Usman Obtains Permission to Travel

Justice Rilwan Aikawa presiding over a Federal High Court sitting in Lagos has yesterday, Tuesday, December 6, granted permission to a former Minister of State for Finance, Nenadi Usman, to travel abroad for breast cancer treatment.

The Justice, who ordered the release of the passport of the former Minister who is being prosecuted for fraud, warned that failure to comply with the court’s directives one of which is to submit back her passport to the Deputy Registrar of the Court on or before January 31, 2018, would attract severe sanction.

Mrs Usman who is facing prosecution for financial fraud totaling N4.9 billion had in an application filed through a counsel, Mr Ferdinand Orbih (SAN), appealed for a 45-day permission to seek medical treatment abroad with a promise not to jump bail.
