Eighty-seven lawyers, from across the country, have been assembled to defend Minna mega-polygamist, Alhaji Mohammed Abubakar Masaba, who is now in prison custody.

Mohammed Sanusi, leader of the group of lawyers, told P.M.News, this morning, that the lawyers would be assembled from Kaduna, Abuja, Ilorin, Sokoto, Port Harcourt, Ibadan and Lagos.

He also told P.M.News that a lawyer, Barrister Femi Dennis, has filed an applicancation for bail at the Niger State High Court, Minna. Hearing of the application may come up tomorrow or Wednesday, he said.
