The prosecutor said the offences committed are contrary to Sections 57 (1) (a) (c) and punishable Under Sections 168 (1) (d) (2), of the criminal laws of Lagos State 2015.

The magistrate, Mrs A. A. Runsewe, granted him bail in the sum of N20,000, with one surety, gainfully employed.
She said the surety must show evidence of tax payment to the Lagos State government and have his address verified.
The case was then adjourned till May 21.
