A magistrate court in Yaba, Lagos, yesterday, granted bail to Orji Osita, a pharmacist with Oxpharm Pharmacy, after he was arraigned over alleged involvement in the murder of Miss Cynthia Osokogu, who was  murdered in a hotel at Festac Town, Lagos on July 22.

Osita, who was yesterday  re-arraigned before Magistrate Aka-Bashorun, would be standing  trial before the High Court alongside three other suspects, Okwumo Nwabufo, Ejike Olisaeloka  and Nonso Ejike.

It will be recalled that the court had ordered Osita’s re-arrest  during the previous sitting, after he was earlier released by Justice Adeniyi Onibanjo of Lagos High Court, sitting in Ikeja, but Director of Public Prosecution’s second advice later found him culpable on two count charges of reckless and negligent act contrary to section 249 (1) of the criminal law of Lagos state 2011.
