They were arraigned on a one-count charge of misappropriation, to which they pleaded not guilty.

The charge read: “That you Bala Danagundi, Mohammed Usman Jega, Ibrahim Yakubu, sometime between January and March 2017 in Kano, within the jurisdiction of the Kano State High Court, while entrusted with the sum of N9 million (Nine Million Naira) only by Tata Umar for trading, violated the terms of the agreement by misappropriating the said money and you thereby committed an offence contrary to Section 311 of the Penal Code Law and punishable under Section 312 of the same law.”

Following their plea, prosecution counsel, Michael Ojo requested the court for a trial date and the defendants to be remanded in the custody of Nigerian Correctional Service, NCS.

However, counsel for the first defendant, Mahmud Shehu, and counsels for the second and third defendants Shaik Mujibur-Rahman and M.A. Ilah respectively, applied for bail for their clients.
