Philomena Chieshe, charged with alleged “missing” N35 million belonging to the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB), was on Monday granted bail in the sum of N20 million by an FCT High Court Maitama.

Chieshe, a clerical officer with JAMB, was arraigned last Friday by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) alongside Samuel Sale Umoru, a state coordinator with JAMB.

Ruling in the bail application, Justice Peter Affen declared that bail was not about setting people free but to ensure that a defendant attends trial.

He added that the Administration of Criminal Justice Act (ACJA), 2015 holds that bail be granted in the most liberal terms.

The defendant was also ordered to produce two sureties in like sum.

He ordered that the sureties must have landed property in Abuja worth the value of the bail sum.

Justice Affen further ordered the defendant’s counsel, Mark Feese, to put in writing the good characters of the sureties.
