Following an oral application for bail by their counsel, Mr. Yemi Ajao, the trial judge, Justice Okon Abang, admitted the accused to bail in the sum of N1 million each, with one surety each in like sum. The case has however been adjourned to March 11, 2015 for trial.

According to Mr. Daniel Apochi, the prosecutor:
