Tanko said the offence contravened the provisions of sections 196, 97 and 287 of the Penal Code.

The defendants, however, pleaded not guilty.

The defence counsel, Christy Oboh prayed the court to grant his clients bail in the most liberal terms, citing sections 158 and 162 of Administration of Criminal Justice Act (ACJA).

She said the defendants are presumed innocent until proven guilty by the law, adding that the defendants would always make themselves available to attain their trials.

The Magistrate, Mr Yusuf Ibrahim, admitted the defendants to bail in the sum of N100, 000 each with one reasonable surety each in like sum who must reside within the court’s jurisdiction.

Ibrahim said the sureties must undertake to an affidavit to forfeit the bail bond if the defendants jumped bail.

He also ordered that the defendants and the sureties must provide valid means of identification to the satisfaction of the court and adjourned the case until March 2, for hearing.
