Mike (SAN), the lead defence lawyer, said the defense filed a preliminary objection on Tuesday evening, asking for the charge to be dismissed or quashed.

We also request that the defendant be discharged and acquitted because the charge is without merit. It is based on nothing.

“We also have a motion requesting that the defendant be granted bail,” Ozekhome said.

Labaran rebutted him, claiming that the defense’s two applications were not ready for hearing.

He went on to say that he would need time to examine them before deciding whether or not to respond to them.

“In essence, the business of the day cannot be truncated by these applications,” Labaran said.

In her ruling, Justice Binta Nyako stated that because the defendant’s first application was challenging the propriety of his trial and the competence of the charge, the court should hear him first.

“As for the second motion (on the issue of bail), I don’t even want to talk about it at this stage,” the judge said.
