According to the one-count charge, two defendants were accused of the offense, but only Mr. Echodo was arraigned at a magistrate court in Abuja because the other defendant, Mr Adamu was at large.
Security operatives had ransacked the building on Friday morning following information accusing the occupants of criminal offenses and storage of arms and ammunition.
During the search, They found nothing incriminating.
The counsel to the defense, Peter Ngwoke, pleaded the court to grant his client bail.
The magistrate, Umar Kagarko, asked the police to find and present the other suspect in court at the next sitting after adjourning the case to June 5, for ruling on the bail application.
