Three unemployed men were on Friday remanded in Kirikiri Prisons on the orders of an Ikeja Magistrates’ Court for allegedly robbing a woman at gun point.
The accused men are Righteous Ejiaru, 24; Sadiq Raheem, 21, and Opeyemi Hassan, 20.
Chief Magistrate Mr A.A. Fashola, who gave the ruling, said the three men should be kept behind bars, pending an advice from the Lagos State Director of Public Prosecutions.
The accused people, whose residential addresses were not provided, are facing a two-count charge of robbery and conspiracy.
Earlier, the Prosecuting Counsel, Police Sgt. Michael Unah, told court that the three men committed the offences on April 24 at 6.00 a. m. at Amuwo Odofin in Festac Town, Lagos.
Unah alleged the accused conspired and robbed an unidentified woman at gun point.
“The accused were caught by a mob that reported the case at a police station,” Unah said.
According to him, the offences contravene Sections 297 (2) and 411 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Section 297 prescribes 21 years jail term for robbery, while Section 411 stipulates two years imprisonment for conspiracy.
The magistrate adjourned the case until Aug. 13. (NAN)
