Court orders two sureties to forfeit N6m bail bond



Chief James Izomo Court

Justice Efe Ikponwnoba of Edo State High Court on Tuesday, January 18, 2022 ordered two sureties, Chief James Izomo and Elliot Ebole to forfeit a bail bond of N3 million each to the Federal Government of Nigeria.

The order is sequel to an application by the Benin Zonal Command of the EFCC, which had approached the court to mandate the sureties to show cause why they should not forfeit the bond duly entered and executed by them in September 2021 following their failure to produce a suspect, Roland O. Omo-Ogbebor.
