When asked about the documents, Igwe disclosed that she had it but wouldn’t hand it over until Chikwado rescind his decision and marry her.

The Prosecutor, Mr. G. Simon, did not oppose her being granted bail but asked the court for date for hearing of the matter.


Thus, the Magistrate, Kayode Layeni, granted her bail in the sum of N200,000 with two sureties in like sum.

She was remanded in prison custody pending when she would perfect her bail condition.

The matter was adjourned till 14th November, 2018.
