Her counsel, Raji Abiola, then prayed the court to grant her client bail in
the most liberal terms.

bail in the sum of N200,000 for the alleged theft of dried fish valued
Ms. Olowolagba ordered the defendant to produce one reliable
surety in like sum.
She said the surety must reside within the court’s jurisdiction, deposed to affidavit of means, show evidence of tax payment and attach two passport size photographs.
She adjourned the case till April 11 for hearing.
