An Ikeja Chief Magistrates’ Court, on Tuesday ordered that two men be remanded in Kirikiri Correctional Centre for alleged armed robbery.
The police charged Sunday Olawunmi, 37, and Chidozie Amuzie, 28, who both reside in Ajagbandi area of Lagos State with armed robbery.
Chief Magistrate J.A. Adegun, did not take the plea of the suspects, for want in jurisdiction to entertain the case.
He adjourned the case until Oct. 13, for hearing.
Earlier, the Prosecution Counsel, ASP Benson Emuerhi, had told the court that the suspects, armed with dangerous weapons, robbed Mr Jamiu Issa of his Tecno Camon 15 phone valued at N96,000 and cash of N220,000.
The offence, he said, contravened the provisions of sections 297(1) (2) (a) (b) and 299 of the Criminal Laws of Lagos State, 2015.
The sections stipulate 21 years’ imprisonment for armed robbery if found guilty. (NAN)
