Alleged fake syrup producer arrested by NAFDAC
Prosecuting counsel, Umar Shamaki told the court that Chiokwe imported fake products.
Defence counsel, Chukwudi Nneke in his bail application, urged the court to admit the accused to bail because the offence was a bailable one.
The prosecution did not oppose to the bail application but prayed the court to impose stringent conditions.
Justice Dagat, in a short ruling, granted the accused bail in the sum of N1 million and two sureties in like sum.
One of the sureties must be a relative of the accused and the second a landed property owner within the court’s jurisdiction, with evidence of three years tax clearance.
The court ordered the remand of the accused until his bail conditions are met.
The case was adjourned to April 5 for trial.
