The Acting Solicitor General and Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Justice, Mr Dapo Adeniji, who led the legal team from the ministry, opposed the bail application.

Adeniji argued that the accused was being arraigned for the first time in the court, while the bail application was filed before the arraignment.

He said,

“The bail application is premature because the accused was not in custody when the application was filed.”

The presiding judge, Justice Ayo Oyebiyi, in his ruling ordered that the accused should be remanded at the Ilesa Prison till June 29, 2018 when the case would come up for hearing.
