An Ikeja Chief Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday
remanded in prison custody two men, Elijah Adeyemi,
and Adebola Obafunwa, docked over illegal possession of
arms and conspiracy to commit armed robbery. At their
arraignment, the accused persons denied being armed
robbers, but members of an unlawful society, Eiye
confraternity.
“Yes, we are members of Eiye confraternity, we are not
robbers, our members just drink together and have fun,
just like Kegites,” the accused said. Adeyemi, 37, and
Obafunwa, 27, of no fixed addresses, are facing a five-
count charge bordering on illegal possession of
ammunition, conspiracy to commit armed robbery and
unlawful association.
They both entered a not-guilty plea. The prosecutor, Insp.
Simon Imhonwa, however, told the court that the accused
persons committed the offences on Oct. 27, at 3.30p.m. at
Oyebola St., Onipanu, Lagos. Imhonwa said the accused
persons were found with 12 rounds of live cartridges
without any licence.
According to him, the accused were rounded up at their
hideout where they had assembled to commit armed
robbery. “The accused were arrested at their hideout at
Onipanu, following a tip-off. “12 rounds of live cartridges
were found with them. They are also members of an
unlawful secret society,” Imhonwa said.
He said the offences contravened Sections 36, 61, 296 and
297 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2011. The Chief
Magistrate, Mrs Bola Osunsanmi, adjourned the case till
Jan. 28 for trial.
