Justice Oshodi granted their bail applications and ordered them to deposit their International Passports with the court. Both Ajumogobia and Obla were given a 7 day ultimatum to perfect the bail
conditions, otherwise their bail will be revoked.
"Whenever there was a cash inflow of more than Five Hundred Thousand, I will keep a certain amount in my account, and forward the remaining to her account" he said.
The matter was adjourned to January 9, 2017 for continuation of trial.
