The two aides named Jamiu Oyetunji and Amudat Babatunde have been accused of terrorism alongside being in possession of illegal firearms with over 1,400 rounds of ammunitions.

Another charges filed against Amudat Babatunde was as a result of her using her Facebook account as a platform to promote terrorism.
