An undergraduate at the University of Ado-Ekiti, Mr. Kehinde Osuntuyi, on Thursday appeared before an Ado-Ekiti Chief Magistrates’ Court charged with the illegal possession of a pistol.


The News Agency of Nigeria reports that Osuntuyi, 25, was also accused of being a member of a secret cult in the university.


The police prosecutor, Mr. Caleb Lerano, told the court that the accused was arrested by the police on January 3 at about 11.30 pm along Adebayo Street in Ado-Ekiti with a locally made pistol.


Lerano said the offence was contrary to Section 28, subsection (B), (1), (2) of the Firearms Act, Cap 146, Laws of the Federation of Nigeria 1990.
