When the case came up today, the four defendants who were represented by counsel, pleaded not guilty to the 10-count charge proffered against them.
Counsel to Rita and the elder sister Ngozi did not file a formal application for bail; hence the presiding judge ordered that they be remanded in prison custody.
Their Counsel had earlier made an oral application to the court for them to be remanded in NAPTIP custody, a request the court turned down.
Ozigi Abdulkarim and Princewill James on the other hand, had through their lawyer, M. Ojobor and Ugochukwu Opara made a formal application for their bail.
The Judge granted them bail based on the conditions that they must provide two sureties each, who must not be below the rank of a Director in the Public Service in Abuja and must be landlords in the FCT.
The case was subsequently adjourned to Wednesday13th September, 2017 for hearing.
