Rape trial: Ex-Bayelsa security adviser appeals bail denial


A former Security Adviser to former Bayelsa State governor Chief Timipre Sylva, standing trial for alleged rape of a 26-year-old former employee has appealed a ruling denying him bail. 

The trial judge, Justice E. Eradiri, had on July, 31 denied bail to the accused, Chief Richard Kpodo, and ruled that he be remanded in prison custody from where he would be given access to medical care.
