The judge, Mr. Inuwa Maiwada, remanded Esther and Victor Yohanna, Izu Obi and Ibrahim Abubakar, who reside in Abuja. They were charged with joint act, theft and mischief. Maiwada, then, adjourned the case until June 3, for hearing in written bail applications.
The prosecutor said that the defendants, and others at-large, broke into Ahmed’s Toyota Corolla which was parked in front of his house in Jabi, Abuja.
Ukagha said during police investigation it was discovered that one of the defendants, Abubakar, and others at-large, transferred N2m to Esther’s GTB account.
The prosecutor said the offence contravened the provisions of sections 79, 288 and 327 of the Penal Code.
Earlier, Mrs. Charity Nwosu, counsel to the defendants, dame an oral application for their bail on the most liberal terms.
Ukagha opposed to the bail due to the prevalence and sensitivity of the offence. (NAN)
