A federal court in Abuja has granted former Governor Sule Lamido of Jigawa State, and his two sons, bail.
They are to be released from prison once the bail conditions are met.
Mr. Lamido and his sons are facing money laundering charges, brought against them by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission.
They were arraigned last week in Kano, and were later remanded pending their bail application hearing on September 28.
The Lamidos were however transferred secretly to Kuje prison in Abuja on Monday, ahead of a hearing Tuesday, after another judge was assigned to consider the bail application.
