The complaint, through the prosecutor, told the court that her husband is aware of her stance as an anti-bigamy and anti-poligamy, yet went ahead to wed, contrary to their marital vows.

After Uzoma pleaded not guilty to the allegation, he was admitted to bail by the magistrate in the sum of N1m with two responsible sureties in like sum.

Magistrate Olatunbosun said one of the sureties must have landed property in Lagos.

The case was then adjourned till March 15, 2023.
