They all pleaded not guilty to the charges and were each granted bail in the sum of N50 million with two sureties in like sum.

The court had also ordered the accused to sign an undertaking not to unnecessarily delay the trial.

Mr. Buba then adjourned the case to Dec.14 for trial.

When the case came up on Monday, the counsel to the first accused, Joseph Nwobike (SAN), prayed the court for a short adjournment to enable him regularise and prepare for trial.

Following his application, Justice Buba adjourned the case to Dec. 14 for commencement of trial.

In the charge jointly signed by Festus Keyamo and Rotimi Iseoluwa, the accused were said to have committed the alleged offences between December 2013 and March 2014.

They were also accused of converting about N66 million to their private use on Jan. 9, 2014, and between April and August, 2014, they converted N21 million and N53 million, respectively, to their use.
