Four friends were on Monday docked in a Grade ‘A’ Customary Court in Ibadan for allegedly threatening the life of a pastor, Charles Gold.

The police charged Olatunji Musibau, 44; Abiodun Folarin, 50; Kazeem Oluremi, 60; and Yusuf Sodiq, 23, with conspiracy and conduct likely to cause breach of peace.

The prosecution counsel, Philip Amusan, told the court that the defendants allegedly committed the offence on March 8, at about 2:00 p.m., at New Bodija Area in Ibadan.

Mr Amusan alleged that the defendants and others at large threatened violence against Mr Gold of Echo Evangelical Ministry in Ibadan.

He said the offence contravened sections 516 and 383 of the Criminal Laws of Oyo State, 2000.

The defendants, however, pleaded not guilty to the charge.

The court president, Moji Aworemi, admitted the defendants to N150,000 bail each and one surety each in like sum.

Ms Aworemi held that the surety must be a blood relation to the defendants.

She adjourned the case until April 29 for mention.
