Possession of Firearms: Ondo Court remands 7 political thugs

Seven suspected political thugs arrested last week with firearms in Ose local government area of the state, have been remanded at the Nigerian Correctional Service Centre, Olokuta in Akure.

They were remanded by an Akure Magistrate Court presided over by Magistrate Tope Aladejana.

The seven suspects were arrested by security agents along Ikaro road, Ifon headquarters of Ose LGA on September 19, 2020 while parading the town with a branded campaign vehicle of Eyitayo Jegede, candidate of the People’s Democratic Party for the Ondo governorship election.

Jegede has since disowned the suspected thugs.

The Magistrate therefore ordered that the suspects remanded to enable the police conclude investigations into the incident.

Ondo Attorney-General and Commissioner for Justice, Mr. Adekola Olawoye, said prosecution of the suspects was part of the duty of any responsible government to protect its citizens under the provisions of law.

Hearing on the matter has been adjourned to October 22, 2020.
