A Federal High Court sitting in Abuja has ordered that media mogul, Chief Raymond Dokpesi be remanded in Kuje prisons pending the perfection of his bail conditions.

The judge granted Dokpesi bail in the sum of N200 million and two sureties in the like amount.
The judge also stipulated that one of the sureties must be a civil servant of the status of serving or retired director in the federal or state civil service.

  1. Y..must he die in prision…Partial govt..Is it only people dat supported GEJ is in trial.APC dumping ground for PDP..senselss and visionless govt..indeed d leopard can’nt change his skin..

  2. Thank you Judge Gabriel Kolawole for setting this type bond against this theif. Although he is not the only one including other accomplices. I have said it before that, if this Country will experience a positive change, is going to start from our Judiciary branch. I’m not saying they should not give them bond but it has to be stringent one. If you steal #1 Billion Naira, your bail bond must be around 6 or 7 hundred millions unlike other corruptible Judges who will grant the criminals 200,000 Naira and let the use the remaining portion to fight back. It appears that situation is now changing gradually for better.
