“Consequently, the no-case submission is overruled and the defendants are ordered to enter their defence,” Justice Omotosho declared.

The matter was adjourned until March 12 for the defendants to enter a defence.

Omotosho also accepted Sen. Victor Ndoma-Egba and Okon Efut (SAN) as sureties for the bail earlier granted to Ndifon.

Ndoma-Egba represented Cross River Central Senatorial District in the National Assembly for 12 years.
