Prof. Cyril Ndifon, the suspended Dean of the Faculty of Law at the University of Calabar, has been granted bail by the Federal High Court in Abuja. 

Sunny Anyanwu, Ndifon’s lawyer, who was charged with him by the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission, ICPC, was also granted bail.

The professor and his lawyer are currently on trial on four revised counts of alleged sexual harassment and an attempt to pervert the course of justice.

While Ndifon was given bail in the amount of N250 million with two sureties, Anyanwu was also awarded N50 million with two sureties.

The trial judge, Justice James Omotoso, ruled on their bail application on Friday, saying, “Bail is granted to the first defendants in the sum of N250m with two sureties who hold properties within FCT with a minimum valuation of N150m.
