Efforts to produce the equipment or recover the money, were futile.

One of the charge read, “that you, Solomon Ikechukwu Okonkwu, being the managing Director of POLNIL Limited and POLNIL Limited sometimes between November 2014 and November, 2015 in Kano, within the jurisdiction of this Honourable Court dishonestly misappropriated the sum of Two Million Six Hundred and Fifty Thousand Naira (N2, 650,000.00) entrusted to you by Aisha Shittu for the supply of one unit of Shortmare Diathermy (model mettle 395) and you thereby committed an offence contrary to Section 311of the Penal Code and punishable to Section 312 of the Penal Code.”

The defendant pleaded “not guilty” when the charge was read to him.

Defence counsel, applied orally to the court for the bail of the defendant.

Hussein opposed the oral application for bail.
