According to the source, the late defendant’s attorney filed a bail application with the court last week due to the defendant’s sickness.
According to the source, the resumption of the trial in the case is scheduled for today (Monday), and the bail application was scheduled to be heard before they learned of the defendant’s death.
Arinze, who had been ill, was reportedly transported from the jail to a General Hospital on Friday, where he died.
