The prosecutor, Insp. Taiwo Adegoke, told the court that Nwako, who is facing a one-count charge, committed the offense on March 2, 2016 at Service area, Osogbo.

The magistrate granted the accused bail in the sum of N100,000 and two sureties in like sum.

Awodele said the sureties, who must reside within the court’s jurisdiction, must attach two passport sized photographs to an affidavit of means.

She also said one of the sureties must be a civil servant and the other a closed relative to the accused.

The case was adjourned till November 11, for hearing.
