court1The Police in Osogbo on Friday arraigned a 35-year-old man, Joseph Iremi, before an Osogbo Chief Magistrates’ Court for allegedly kidnapping one Wasiu Oyedele.

The Police Prosecutor, Inspector Wilson Meriti, told the court that the accused and others at large conspired and committed the offence of kidnapping on Sept 18, at Iragbiji in Boripe Local Government Area.

Mr. Meriti added that the accused and his accomplices kidnapped Mr. Oyedele and demanded ransom from his father to secure his release.

He said the offence committed by the accused contravened sections 516 and 364 of the Criminal Code Cap 38 Laws of the Federation of Nigeria 2004.

The accused, however, pleaded not guilty to the two-count charge.

The counsel to the accused, Joseph Abidoye, applied for his bail in liberal term.

The Magistrate, Adebayo Lasisi, granted the accused bail in the sum of N50, 000 and one surety in like sum.

Mr. Lasisi ordered that the surety must be a traditional chief in Iragbiji and must provide three years tax clearance certificates and two clear passport photographs to the court.

He adjourned the case to October 2 for hearing.
