    It has already filed a 13-count charge against the five men.

    Those to be arraigned are – Benjamin Ojo, Atere Olutayo Ayodeji, Adegbite Adewale, Yusuf Olatunji and Mustapha Dodo.

    The men, who have since been arrested, were taken to court on Monday, but could not be arraigned because of some administrative hitches.
