Modakeke   –     A Modakeke Magistrates’ Court in Osun on Friday ordered the remand of 24-year-old man, Adebisi Saheed, over alleged armed robbery.

Saheed is facing a two-count charge of armed robbery and possession of dangerous weapons.

Senior Magistrate Bose Awosan did not take the plea of the suspect, as the court lacked the jurisdiction to hear the case.

Awosan ordered that the defendant be remanded in prison pending legal advice from the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) and adjourned the case until Nov.13.

Earlier, the Prosecutor, Sgt. Ona Glory, had told the court that the suspect committed the offences on Dec. 26, 2016, around 9.30 a.m. at Akoraye Area, Modakeke-Ife.
