She had also said the family was making efforts to get them released until lawyers from Mike Ozekhome’s chambers, lawyer to Kassim and Aliyu,  and thwarted the process through thr fundamental human rights suit.

Ozekhome confirmed the release of the duo to TheCable on Tuesday.

He said Lola Abiola-Edewor, first daughter of late businessman, and another relative, signed an undertaking with the police over the bail of the brothers.

Ozekhome added that four suspects have been charged before a magistrate’s court over the robbery.

“Yes, they have been released. There was no condition attached to their release because they did not participate in the robbery,” he said.

“Those who are the real suspects have been charged before a magistrate’s court. The only reason they were detained was that the police said they were rude to them. Is that why you detain them for almost two weeks?”
