Today, all the suspects were arraigned afresh at the State High Court 7 Uyo and were asked to be rema nded in the prison Custody with stiff bail conditions. So, the 5 of them, the Principal Ndidi Solomon, the Vice Principal, the wicked House masters, Akpan and others apart from the 2 minors were ordered to be detained in the prison custody until they met their bail conditions. Their lawyers were running up and down and cold caught all of them when the Judge gave the ruling. Further more, after a lengthy argument that lasted for about 3hrs, the judge ruled that the 2 accused minors, Old and Shalom will be tried at the Juvenile family Court, while the other 5 accused persons will be tried in the open Court where everyone shall see them.
