The defendants were also accused of belonging to a cult group and turning the school premises to an Indian hemp-smoking joint. They pleaded “not guilty” to the three counts the police preferred against them, following which the Presiding Magistrate, O.A Layinka, granted each of the defendants N50,000 bail with two sureties in the like sums. The defendants remand is pending the perfection of their bail conditions.
Before the order for their remand, the police told the court that the school management reported the defendants would sneak into the school at night to smoke and defecate on the premises.
