The hope of the Ondo State chairman of Peoples' Democratic Party (PDP), Mr. Clement Faboyede, and the Director-General of the party's campaign organization, Modupe Adetokunbo, to temporary regain their freedom, was dashed on Tuesday, as Justice Sule Hassan ordered that they should be remanded in prison custody till July 19.

Both Clement and Adetokunbo were arraigned before Justice Saliu Saidu, of the same court, on June 29, by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), over alleged N500 million fraud.

However, after hearing of their bail application today, Justice Hassan, ordered that they should be returned to prison custody pending July 19, when their bail application will be decided on.
