Popular social media influencer, Adedamola Adewale, also known as Adeherself, is set to go home as she has been granted N500,000 bail by an Ikeja Special Offences Court over alleged fraud charged by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
In a ruling, Justice Sherifat Solebo also ordered that Adewale must provide two sureties with reliable means of income which would be verified by the court.
Solebo adjourned the case until Aug 5 for substantive hearing.
Recall that some days ago, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) begged court to deny popular social media influencer Adeherself
At the beginning of the trial days ago, Mr Samuel Daji, the lead prosecuting counsel for the anti-graft agency, made the plea to court to deny Adewale’s bail hearing.
“I urge the court to refuse the bail of the defendant and order accelerated hearing,” Daji said.
Earlier, the defence counsel, Mr Tunde Salami, had applied to the court to grant bail on liberal terms to Adewale who had been remanded in EFCC’s custody since July 7. Read more here.
