Ibrahim Abubakar, Abubakar Maigaskiya and Bashir Musa before Justice Faruk Lawal of Kano State High Court on two separate charges bordering on conspiracy to obtain money by false pretence.

The accused persons alongside three others currently at large were alleged to have sometime in June 2009 conspired among themselves and forged documents purportedly emanating from the Federal Medical Centre, Birnin Kebbi, Kebbi State, for use in obtaining a N93 million loan facility from a new generation bank.

The accused have been remanded in prison custody pending hearing of their bail applications.

The case was adjourned to Friday.
