The trio pleaded not guilty, while not guilty plea was equally recorded for six companies charged with them.

In his ruling, Justice Taiwo granted Oyo-Ita bail at N100m, while Umar and Effiok got bail at N50m each.

The judge ordered that each of the defendants must provide two sureties and released them with a condition that they report at the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) office for seven days until they meet the bail conditions.
