Apata urged the court to adjourn the case to enable him study the file and assemble  his witnesses.

The Defence Counsel, Mr Olawumi Olowofela, urged the court to grant his client bail, promising that she would not jump bail.

The magistrate, Mrs Kehinde Awosika, granted the defendant bail  in the sum of N200,000 with two sureties in like sum.

Awosika ordered that the sureties must be her blood relations.

She adjourned the case until June 3 for mention.
