Meanwhile, investigative report revealed that Abubakar and his sponsors; David Chang and Otunba Steve Ajose were training bandits at Oreki land, near Eleko Junction, Ibeju Lekki, Lagos.

Several pictures of the accused with his cohorts surfaced with AK47 rifle and the pictures were taken at illegal training camp and the Funmi Eguaje called for the file to Abuja to caged the investigation.
