He alleged that the accused obtained the sum of 50,000 Dollars ( N8.5 million) from the complainant, Mr Ismail Abdul to offer special prayers for Allah’s blessings on the money to enable the complainant to purchase two trucks and for his business to be free from all spiritual problems.

Justice Muslim Hassan granted the accused bail in the sum of N1 million with one surety in like sum and that the surety must provide three years tax clearance.

He ordered that the accused should be remanded in prison pending when the bail conditions would be satisfied.
