He alleged that the defendants deceived and lured the 11 boys to their house in Jakara Quarters, Kano, and sodomised them.

The prosecutor, who opposed the bail application filed the defence counsel, argued that the charge against them were grievous in nature and urged the court to dismiss the application.

Baba said that the offences contravened the provisions of Section 284 of the Penal Code, to which the defendants each pleaded not guilty.

The defence counsel, Mr Dalhatu Usman, urged the court to grant his clients bail pursuant to Sections 35 and 36(5) of the 1999 Nigeria Constitution as amended. (NAN))
