Prominent among the applications are the application to quash the 22-count charge  preferred against Akingbola and another one asking the court for the  revocation of  bail.

In the sworn affidavit in support of the application filed by Chief Felix  Fagbohungbe, SAN, the two other Senior Advocates, Ricky Tarfa and Deji Sasegbon, are  contending that the proof of evidence filed before the court did not disclose any  prima facie case. In addition, all the 22 counts are speculative, defective,  incompetent, incurably bad and have no lesus with the proof of evidence.
