The court cautioned the parties in the case to maintain decorum and not make unnecessary comments.

The judge said, "The court did not remand her in custody as a punitive means to penalise the defendant but to make her present and answer to her case. By this I shall quick to point out that the charge against the defendant is bailable but not ordinary.

"I hereby grant her bail on the following condition of a surety who must be a Grade Level 12 working within the FCT. 

"Also, all the parties involved in the case should stay from anything that would be prejudicial to the case."

The judge adjourned the matter until February 23 for trial.
