Arisekola’s son was last week  arraigned before Justice Habeeb Abiru, but refused to hear his bail application based on the objection raised by Economic and Financial Crimes, EFCC’s counsel, Mr Rotimi Jacobs, who said he will file a counter affidavit on point of law.

The ruling followed arguments canvassed by counsels to both parties.

The defence counsel, Babajide Koku, SAN, had argued that Alao never had any criminal record and he is presumed innocent until proven guilty by the court.
