Justice Stephen Adah, in the lead judgment, held that the appellant placed no new materials before the court to warrant it departing from the earlier decision on the issue by Justice Emeka Nwite of the Federal High Court, Abuja.
Justice Adah proceeded to affirm the ruling by Justice Nwite, rendered on March 28, 2022 rejecting Ubua’s application for bail on the grounds that the prosecution placed sufficient materials before the court to warrant its rejection of the bail application.
