The defendants were instructed by magistrate Adeola Olatunbosun to turn in their passports and to report every week to the State Criminal Investigation Department in Panti.

“As part of the bail conditions, the defendants are to surrender their passports and make weekly appearances at the State Criminal Investigation Department,” Olatunbosun ruled.

She cautioned against direct communication about the subject in question.

“Any attempts to contact me directly would be recorded and potentially disclosed in open court proceedings,” she added.
