A Magistrates’ Court sitting in Ado Ekiti, on Wednesday, ordered the remand of a 27-year-old man, Kolofo Adejo, for allegedly robbing a student of the Bamidele Olumilua University of Education, Science and Technology, Ikere Ekiti, of her valuables.

Adejo was charged by the police with armed robbery.

The police prosecutor, Bamikole Olasunkanmi, claimed that the defendant committed the offence on August 4, 2021, in the Ado Ekiti Magisterial District.

“The offence is contrary to Section 1(1) of the Robbery and Firearms (Special Provisions) Act Cap.398 Laws of the Federation of Nigeria, 1990.”

He urged the court to remand the defendant pending the issuance of legal advice from the Directorate of Public Prosecutions.

The magistrate, Abdulhameen Lawal, ordered the remand of the defendant in a custodial centre.
