An Akure Chief Magistrates’ Court on Monday ordered the remand of a 20-year-old student, Segun Adeoye, at the Olokuta Prison’s custody over an alleged armed robbery of goods worth N3, 675,000.
Adeoye is facing a three-count charge of conspiracy, armed robbery and possession of firearms.
Magistrate Sunday Adedapo ordered the accused to be remanded pending the receipt of legal advice from the office of the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPPs). He also ordered that the original copy of the case file should be sent to the State Chief Registrar for safe keeping.
Earlier, the prosecutor, Mr Pelumi Adejuwon, had told the court that the accused and others at large were armed with a locally-made single barrel gun and other offensive weapons when they carried out the attack.
