‘Both accused should be granted bail of N5m with two sureties each in a sum of N2.5m. That is four sureties altogether. One of the sureties must be a civil servant who has attained level 16 while the other surety must be a land owner in any part of Lagos metropolis,’ Oluremi said in her judgement.

She added: ‘The landowner must submit Certificate of Ownership of the landed property and while the civil servant must submit his international passport to the court. The four sureties must swear to an affidavit while the house and office addresses and telephone number will be verified by the court.’
