The defendants are Akanmu Adedayo, Bolaji Ganiyu,  Adeyemo Gbolahan and Olawale Ridwan.

Sergeant, Fatoba Temitope, told the court that the defendants committed the offence on February 10, at about 2pm in the Ota-Efun area of Osogbo. Temitope said the defendants conspired with others still at large to rob Adeniyi Yisa, Popoola Afeez, Tosin Atoyebi and Abdulwasiu Ishmeel, at gunpoint.
