Court remands three over alleged armed robbery, murder



An Iyaganku Magistrates’ Court, Ibadan, on Monday remanded three men: Kehinde Olagbemiro 55, Kunle Oguntoye, 45 and Morakinyo Mukaila, 57, in a correctional facility in Ibadan over alleged armed robbery and murder.

The dependants, whose addresses were not provided, were charged with conspiracy, armed robbery and murder.

The Magistrate, Mr Maruff Mudashiru, did not take the plea of the defendant for want of jurisdiction.

He directed the police to return the case file to the Director of Public Prosecution (DPP), pending legal advice.

He, thereafter, adjourned the case till Sept. 2 for mention. The Prosecutor, Femi Oluwadare, told the court that the defendants committed the offences between March 25 and June 3 at about 2.00 a.m. at Rhuoga Energy Ltd., Igboora, Oyo State.

According to him, the offences contravene Sections 516 and 319 of the Criminal Laws of Oyo State, 2000.
