“In the course of him staying with us, we stumbled on intelligence that there was an amorous relationship between the first defendant and her foster father and that given that Mr Ojukwu was not sincere, that he was aware of the offence that the first defendant is standing trial today, that she was concealing the real information.
“We also established that the mother of the first defendant never approved the custody of the first defendant to Mr. Ojukwu.
“It was on this basis that we charged him to court alongside the three defendants at the Magistrate Court so that the court can decide if he can get bail, including one Babalola.”
