A Lagos High Court sitting in Ikeja has turned down the bail request of Fred Ajudua, alleged 419 kingpin.
Justice Kudirat Jose said that Mr. Ajudua’s antecedents – accusations of jumping bail in 2006 and tampering with evidence – were responsible for the denial of his bail application.
The judge also stated that Mr. Ajudua’s poor health condition could be met while in detention.
She fixed April 28th and 29th for continuation of trial.
