[Breaking] Alleged contract fraud: Court grants Buhari’s ex-minister, daughter bail

A Federal High Court in Abuja has granted bail each to a former Minister of Aviation Hadi Sirika, his daughter, and two others in the sum of ₦100m with two sureties.

Recall that the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission has slammed six counts on the former minister, his daughter, and two others.

The anti-graft agency accused Sirika of conferring undue advantage on some entities between April 2022 and March 2023 in Abuja.

The embattled minister was also alleged of abuse of his office by awarding consultancy N1.3bn contract for the Nigerian Air Start-up to Tianero Nigeria Limited.
