During the trial on Wednesday, Babatunde Ogala SAN, counsel to the defendant, read out some portions of Olaleye’s bail application, which was earlier filed in the court.
Mr Ogala asked the court to admit the defendant on bail on the grounds that he is ready to attend all the trials for the case.
The lawyer also said that the defendant is a leading cancer care advocate, whose patients will suffer if remanded in prison during the course of the trial.
The senior lawyer said the offences levelled against his client are not “grievous allegations like treason” that warrants the death sentence.
The lawyer added that the behaviour exhibited by Olaleye as it relates to his voluntary presence in court shows that he will comply with the conditions of the court.
