policeTwo students were on Monday arraigned before an Osogbo Chief Magistrates’ Court for allegedly being in possession of dangerous weapons and charms.

The police prosecutor, Insp Abiodun Fagboyinbo, told the court that the accused – Oyebanji Amos, 20; and Atilola Lukman, 22, were arrested during routine security check.

Fagboyinbo told the court that the accused were caught with the dangerous items on Sunday at about 10.15 a.m.  at the NUJ Secretariat in Osogbo,  venue of the National Association of Osun Students election.

The prosecutor said the accused conspired and armed themselves with assorted charms and knives while attending the election, saying this could likely cause a breach of the peace.

Fagboyingbo said the offence committed contravened sections 517 and 249(D) of the Criminal Code Cap 34, Vol.11 Laws of Osun, 2003.

The accused, however, pleaded not guilty to the charge and their counsel, Mr Taiwo Awokunle and Mr Remegius Ngwu, applied for their bail.

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

Lasisi added that the sureties must swear to an affidavit of means and provide two passport photographs to the court.

The case was adjourned to Nov. 1 for hearing. (NAN)
