The offences contravened sections 516, 411(2), 390(9) of the Criminal Law of Osun, 2003.

The Magistrate, Mr Olubukola Olowolagba, granted bail to the accused in the sum of one million with two sureties in the like sum.

Olowolagba said the sureties must reside within the jurisdiction of the court and they must show evidence of tax payment to Osun State Government.
