The Federal High Court, sitting in Yenagoa, Bayelsa State, Monday, ordered further detention of Yunusa Dahiru, alias Yellow, in Okaka Prisons, for the alleged abduction of 14-year-old Ese Oruru, following discrepancies in his bail application. Justice H.A Ngajiwa ruled that Yunusa should remain in prison custody pending the determination of an application seeking his bail.
Also at the resumed hearing on the matter, the state through the Police sought the approval of the court to hear Oruru’s oral evidence in camera. Ngajiwa made the remand order following the inability of the suspect’s five-man team of lawyers led by Kayode Olaosebikan and the prosecution three-man team headed by Kenneth Dika to present evidence of judicial precedent in their arguments during the court session.
The judge concluded that the bail application had suffered setback because the teams of lawyers could not present to the court all authorities they mentioned in their cases as directed by the court.
