The Lagos State Government had charged Ademoye Adewale, Kuku Fatai, Belinda Amao, and Nwatu Victoria with involuntary manslaughter and reckless negligent acts.
The defendants, however, pleaded not guilty to the charge.
Justice Oyindamola Ogala admitted the first and second defendants to N10 million bail each with two sureties each in like sum
She also admitted the third and the fourth defendants to N20 million bail each with two sureties each in like sum.
The judge said all the sureties must be gainfully employed, have credible and verified evidence of their financial status and reside within the court’s jurisdiction.
