The accused persons allegedly killed the 74-year-old trader, saying that she made blasphemous remarks against Prophet Muhammad.
The prosecution counsel, Ekwe Sunday urged the court not to grant the suspects bail, saying that since it is a capital offence, it will be out of place to grant them bail.
“In the interest of the public and the state, the court should not grant them bail because the accusation against the suspects is not only capital in nature, but also is a grievous offence,” Sunday said.
Counsel for the defendants, Gambo Abdusalam, while arguing that the court should entertain the case said that sentiment has no place in court and that it is a matter of fact and law
After hearing their arguments, the Chief Magistrate, Mohammed Jibrin, remanded the accused persons in prison custody and adjourned hearing to July 20.
