An Abuja High Court sitting at Maitama has granted bail to suspended Accountant-General of the Federation, Ahmed Idris alongside two others.

In his ruling on Thursday Justice Adeyemi Ajayi said in line with the due process and supremacy of the law, the Defendants are entitled to bail, irrespective of the enormity of the allegations against them.

Justice Ajayi adopted all the terms and conditions of the administrative bail earlier granted by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission to the suspended AGF and his two co-defendants.

The court had last week Friday ordered that Idris and his co-defendants be kept in Kuje Correctional facility pending the hearing of their bail applications.
