 An Iyaganku Magistrates’ Court, Ibadan, on Wednesday, ordered the remand of two men in a correctional facility over alleged armed robbery.

The duo, Akanni Sodiq, 29 and Olamilekan Ridwan, 28, whose addresses were not provided, are charged with conspiracy and armed robbery.

The Magistrate, Mr Olaolu Olanipekun, did not take the plea of the defendants for want of jurisdiction.

He, thereafter, adjourned the case till June 28 for mention.

The Prosecutor, ASP Anthony Igori, had told the court that the defendants committed the offences on Feb. 27 at about 9 p.m at Amuloko area of Ibadan.

Igori said that the duo, while armed with jack knives, attacked one Femi Daniel, poured granulated pepper in his eyes and dispossessed him of his motorcycle worth N450,000.

He said that the offences contravened Section 1(2) of the Robbery and Firearms Laws of Nigeria
