The presiding judge Chief Magistrate Sir S.D Andrew Jaja presiding over the case in Magistrate Court 5 PortHarcourt, stated the court lacks the jurisdiction to try the case of treasonable felony which goes with Life imprisonment.
He went further to  ask if the court can grant bail to matters of this nature, which was answered by the defending lead counsel Barrister Ejiofor, as he proved to the presiding judge that the Magistrate court does not lack the jurisdiction of granting bail.
