Former Interior Minister, Abba Moro has been granted permission to travel abroad for medical treatment by the Federal High Court, Abuja.

Justice Nnamdi Dimgba granted Moro the permission on Thursday, shortly after the ex-Minister’s lawyer, Paul Erokoro (SAN) moved a motion to that effect.

Moro is being tried with a former Permanent Secretary in the Interior Ministry, Mrs. Anastasia Daniel-Nwobia‎, an ex-director in the ministry, Felix .O Alayebami and a firm, Drexel Tech Nigeria Limited, on an 11-count charge.

It will be recalled that Moro and the rest are being tried over their alleged involvement in the ill-fated 2014 recruitment exercise of the Nigerian Immigration Service (NIS) while Moro was still a minister.

Justice Dimgba hence ordered Moro to ensure his presence in court on September 29 for the continuation of their trial.
