Police arraign two for threatening to kill CDA chairman
On Monday, two men, Wale Fatai, 32, and Deji Oyemomilara, 25, were arraigned at the Ota Magistrates’ Court in Ogun for alleged breach of peace, conspiracy and threat to life.
The defendants face a three-count charge.
The defendants, however, pleaded not guilty to the charges.
The prosecutor, E.O Adaraloye, told the court that the defendants and others still at large committed the offences on March 23 at about 10:30 p.m. in the Aparadiga area, Itele-Awori, Ota.
Mr Adaraloye told the court that the defendants, with their accomplices, conspired to conduct themselves in a manner likely to cause a breach of peace by constituting a nuisance in the community.
He said they threatened the life of the chairman of Olaoluwa Community Development Area (CDA), Nurudeen, by threatening to kill him.
The prosecutor said the offences contravened the Criminal Code, Laws of Ogun, 2006.
The magistrate, A.O. Adeyemi, admitted each defendant to N100,000 bail with one surety in like sum.
Ms Adeyemi ordered that the surety reside within the court’s jurisdiction and be gainfully employed with evidence of tax payment to the Ogun government.
She adjourned the case until June 26 for further hearing.
