The immediate past Chief of Defence Staff, Air Chief Marshal Alex Badeh, has been remanded in Kuje Prisons in Abuja since 7th March 2016 because of his inability to fulfill the bail conditions slammed on him by a Federal High Court. The bail conditions include producing 2 sureties who could pay the sum of N1 billion each, have landed properties in the FCT and provide evidence of three years tax payment.Badeh is also expected to deposit his traveling documents with the Registrar of the court pending the commencement of full trial.
In a related development, a senior prisons official told Vanguard last night that the former CDS has refused to eat the food given to other inmates, preferring food from home. According to the official, “It is the right of every prison inmate to decide whether to bring in their food or eat what is provided by the NPS. In this case, Badeh opted to eat his own food and we have no objection to that. The only condition is that the person who brings the food for him, must first taste it before giving to him.”
