Chief Magistrate, Linda Balogun in her ruling on Monday, April 4, said that the Lagos State Directorate of Public Prosecutions (DPP) advised that a prima facie case had been established against the defendants.

While Kunle Poly is to be tried for accessory to murder, Wahab will face trial for membership in an unlawful society.

The DPP also advised that three other defendants, whose names were mentioned in the advice though they were charged separately from the two defendants, should be discharged.

The case was adjourned till May 11 for a report on the filing of the case at a high court, after Kunle Poly and Wahab were granted bail of N1m each after spending 78 days in custody.

The defendants were directed to produce two sureties each as part of the bail condition. One of the sureties must be a traditional ruler or religious leader, and both sureties must reside within the court’s jurisdiction.

A self-employed person would not stand as the surety, and any civil servant wishing to stand as the surety must get a letter from the Head of Service of Lagos State.
