One of the counts reads:

“That you Gajah Omayulele Lovely on or about the 9th January 2021 whilst standing as surety to a suspect, one Richman Pere (at large) aided and abated his escape by refusing to produce him for arraignment before the Federal High Court, Benin and failing to cooperate with the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission in bringing him to custody and thereby committed an offence”.

The defendant pleaded ‘not guilty’ to the charge, prompting the prosecution counsel, Ibrahim Mohammed to ask the court for a trial date and to remand the defendant in prison custody.
