55-year-old alleged motorcycle robber remanded in custody

An Iyaganku Magistrates’ Court, Ibadan, on Tuesday ordered the remand of one Mohammed Abubakar, 55, in Agodi correctional facility, Ibadan, over suspected armed robbery.

Abubakar, whose address was not provided, was charged with conspiracy and armed robbery.

The Magistrate, Mrs. Adebola Adeola, did not take the plea of the defendant for want of jurisdiction.

She directed the Police to return the case file to the Director of Public Prosecution (DPP) for legal advice.

Adeola adjourned the case until June 7 for mention.

The Prosecutor, Insp. Iyabo Oladoyin, told the court that the defendant allegedly committed the offence on March 18 at about 4.15 a.m., at Mobile Area, Ibadan.

She said that the defendant and others at large, while armed with jack knife and sledge hammer, robbed one Shola Ahmed of his motorcycle worth N550,000.

She said the offence contravened Sections 516 and 390(9) of the Criminal Laws of Oyo State, 2000. (NAN)
