When the charges were read to them, the accused pleaded not guilty of the charges levelled against them.

Counsel to the accused persons, Mrs Adeyinka Dada, prayed the court to grant her clients bail in the most lenient terms.

In his ruling, Chief Magistrate Olusola Aluko granted the accused bail of N50,000 each and adjourned the case till March 17, 2017.
