The arrested persons were subsequently moved to the federal capital territory (FCT) where they have been in detention.

Subsequently, the suspects through their lawyer, Pelumi Olajengbesi, filed an application asking the court to “inquire into the circumstances constituting grounds of their arrest and detention since July 2, 2021, and where it deems fit admit applicants on bail”.

At the resumed hearing today, Olajengbesi, counsel to the applicants, asked the court to admit his clients to bail.

“There is no need to continue to keep them with the respondents,” he said.

Commenting on the bail application, David Awo, DSS counsel, had said he was not opposed to bail for the 3rd, 4th, 7th, 8th, 9th, and 11th applicants.

He told the court that the remaining four applicants (2nd, 12th, 5th, and 6th) were still being investigated.
