The defendant’s attorney requested that his client be granted bail, but the presiding judge, Justice K.C.J. Okereke, declined the request and postponed the trial until March 26, 2024.

Speaking to reporters, Promise Ikechukwu Ogbonna and his group are accused of shooting Chinasa Ogbonna’s brother. Chinasa Ogbonna called Promise a threat to the Olokoro community, Abia, and Nigeria in general.

He claimed that the defendant had committed cultism, armed robbery, and other crimes, and that in the past, certain influential persons had always gotten him out of police custody.

He asked the witnesses to appear before the court and provide their testimony.
