Recall Mamu was arraigned on Tuesday by the office of the attorney-general of the federation (AGF) on a 10-count charge bordering on terrorism.
However, he pleaded not guilty to all the counts and denied having allegiance to the terrorists.
After arraignment, Sani Katu, Mamu's lawyer, drew the court's attention to a bail application filed for his client.
The application dated March 8 is supported by a 21-paragraph affidavit, and an exhibit with a written address.
Katu said although he has been served with the prosecution's counter affidavits opposing the bail application, it was within the court's discretion whether or not to grant bail.
He added that his client is suffering from a disease that requires surgery.
