On Tuesday, June 28, 2022, the beleaguered former PDP candidate for governor, Hon. Farah Dagogo was granted bail by the Rivers State High Court.

It took around 60 days for his bail to be approved after he was taken into custody.

Cosmos Enweluzo, SAN, lead attorney for Dagogo, expressed his happiness that his client had been granted bail outside of court, but he questioned why it had taken the judge more than two months to do so.

In his words, “Where there is rule of law, the right and liberty of a citizen must be respected and honored. We are talking about a citizen who is a member of the National Assembly. But in all things, we give glory to God and also express profane gratitude to the Judge for extending his discretion and magnanimity”.

Only 24 hours after Nyesom Wike issued a warrant for his arrest for allegedly ordering “thugs” to disrupt activities at the PDP state secretariat on Aba Road in Port Harcourt, the lawmaker who represents the Degema/Bonny Federal Constituency in the House of Representatives was apprehended.

He was taken away at the PDP’s South-South zone office screening hall during the party’s gubernatorial screening in April on the basis of the accusation.

In his judgment, Presiding Justice Chiwendu Nwogu released the lawmaker on bail with the requirement that he provide one surety in the amount of N20 million.

In addition, Nwogu prohibited Dagogo from leaving the country without the permission of the court while his case was continuing and ordered him to put his international passport in a safe place.

Also, according to Justice Nwogu, the surety must be a resident of Rivers State, a citizen of Nigeria, and have a registered record of title proving their residence there.
