The magistrate, however, adjourned the case till September 21 for mention.


The News Agency of Nigeria reports that the Police had on May 5 arraigned two men – Lucky Nwene, 38, and Friday Obinna, 37- for allegedly entering the sitting room of Shonekan without an invitation.

The accused denied the charge.

The magistrate granted them bail in the sum of N150,000 each with two sureties each in like sum.
