– did not have their addresses stated. The accused are facing a two-count charge of conspiracy and stealing.

The prosecutor, Insp. Roman Unuigbe , told the court that the offences were committed on Jan. 25 at about 8:40 p.m. at the Sport Centre Pavilion, University of Lagos, Akoka, Yaba, Lagos.

He alleged that the accused entered into the Pavilion and attacked the students using axes to rob them of their valuables.

“They forcefully collected N10, 500 cash and cell phones valued at N506, 000.

“The accused were apprehended at the second gate of the campus and the items and cash were recovered from them,’’ The
prosecutor said the offences contravened Sections 285, 295 and 409 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2011. The accused, however, pleaded not guilty to the two-charge preferred against them.

it was  reports that Section 285 provides for a term of three -year imprisonment for convicted offenders.
The Magistrate, Mr P.A. Ojo, ordered that their sureties must reside in Lagos and should be gainfully employed. He adjourned the case to March 14, for substantive trial.
