They pleaded not guilty to each of the four counts.

Following the application for bail moved by their counsel, Boniface Ugwu, the court granted them bail in the sum of  N300,000 each with one surety in like sum.

It was gathered that the money in question was contributed by doctors for the treatment the late Obinna, who was down with kidney disease.
