After a long argument between the prosecutor and the defense counsel, Justice M. S. Hassan of the Federal High Court Ikoyi on Friday, July 1, adjourned the ruling for bail on the case involving Nenadi, Fani-Kayode and Yusuf.
The lawyers defending the accused urged the court to grant bail to their clients on self-recognizance or liberal terms.

N.M. Anana, the prosecutor representing the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), had filed counter affidavits opposing bail for the three defendants.
The lawyer opposed the bail application on the grounds that the defendants might unduly influence the case against them by intimidating witnesses, tampering with evidence, and hindering the investigation.
The former aviation minister was detained on May 9, after honouring an invitation by the EFCC to explain his role in an alleged looting of funds from the Central Bank of Nigeria.
