A High Court in Minna has granted bail to former Niger State governor, Babangida Aliyu and his former Chief of Staff, Umar Nasko.
Nasko was also the Niger State governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in 2015.

Both men are being prosecuted by the anti-graft agency, EFCC, for alleged corruption while in office.

They were remanded in prison custody on April the 25th after they were docked by the EFCC.
