Court remands 30-year-old man over alleged armed robbery in Ibadan


An Iyaganku Magistrates’ Court in Ibadan, Oyo State, on Monday, ordered the remand of one Rildwan Lawal, 30, who is facing a charge of armed robbery, at the Federal Correctional Centre, Ibadan.

The defendant, whose residential address was not provided, is standing trial on two counts of alleged conspiracy and armed robbery.

The Magistrate, Mrs Abimbola Amole-Ajimoti, who did not take the defendant’s plea for lack of jurisdiction, ordered his remand at the correctional facility.

Amole-Ajimoti directed the Police Prosecutor to send the duplicate case file to the Director of Public Prosecutions for legal advice.

She adjourned the case until August 26 for mention.

Earlier, the Prosecutor, Mr Philip Amusan, had told the court that the defendant committed the offences sometime in May, at the Ologuneru area, Ibadan.

He alleged that the defendant, with others now at large, robbed the complainant, one Oladapo Oyedayo, of his Infinix 11 Play phone worth N92,000, Infinix Hot 101 phone, valued at N75,000 and Tecno phone worth N75,000.
