The News Agency to Nigeria (NAN) reports that Hernme and Mohammed, currently facing trial had confessed that Ujo and Azuanagu were their members, which led to their arrest.

Ifeanyi said that the offences contravened Section 306 of the Penal Code.

The Magistrate, Mr Raphael Egbe, granted bail to the suspects in the sum of N100, 000 each with one surety each in like sum.

Egbe said that the surety must be a grade level nine officer and above in the federal civil service in the FCT and must reside within the court’s jurisdiction.

He adjourned the case until Oct. 11 for hearing. (NAN)
