A Magistrate Court in Wuse, on Friday, admitted a public servant, Aisha Shettima, to bail in the sum of two million naira for alleged forgery and land grabbing.

Magistrate Elizabeth Wonni, granted the bail application moved by Shettima’s counsel, Suleiman Yakubu, after the defendant took her plea.

Shettima is being charged alongside former Zonal Manager, Abuja Municipal Area Council, AMAC, Lugard Edegbe, who had earlier been arraigned and granted bail.

However, following the appearance of Shettima in court on Friday, the police prosecutor, Peter Amadi, applied that the case be taken afresh in the interest of fair hearing.

After the first information report was read to the defendants, they denied engaging in the offences brought against them.

Although Edegbe’s counsel was not in court, Shettima’s lawyer, Yakubu, applied that his client be admitted to bail on liberal terms, pending the hearing and determination of the matter in accordance with the provisions of the law.

Amadi did not oppose the application.

The judge, who ruled that the earlier bail granted Edegbe should subsist, also granted Aisha’s plea for bail with two sureties who must be residents of FCT.

She ordered that the sureties must produce in court proof of payment of utility bills and their passport photographs.
