Justice Halilu Yusuf of Federal Capital Territory High Court sitting in Maitama, Abuja, on Thursday granted bail to Chinyere Amuchienwa Igwegbe, the estranged mistress of a former governor of Imo State, Ikedi Ohakim.

Igwegbe has been prosecuted for allegedly providing false information in a petition she wrote against Ohakim.

She had accused the ex-governor of conspiracy, criminal intimidation, defamation of character, attempted kidnapping and threat to life as well as accepting payment of a sum of N500m for the purchase of land in Lagos.

She had also accused Ohakim and one Chinedu Okpareke of harassment and threatening to release her nude photos.

The police, however, claimed that these allegations could not be proved and were aimed at blackmailing her victims.
