The Prosecutor, Inspector Samuel Isholla told the court that the six defendants and two others at large, committed the alleged offence on February 5, 2024, at about 1.30p.m, at Oba Akintoye Market, Lagos Island, Lagos State.

Counsel to the defendants S. Ade Oshodi and Ademola Olabiyi, announced their appearance for the defendants and nominal complainant’s lawyer respectively.

The defendants, however, pleaded not guilty to the charges.

Following their not guilty plea, their lawyer, Oshodi, who led the other six lawyers, informed the court that all his clients were market men and women. He therefore urged the court to admit them to bail in the most liberal terms.

Responding to the lawyer’s request, the prosecutor told the court that granting of bail is at court’s discretion but said that the court should admit them to bail in terms and conditions that will ensure their attendance in court.

While delivering his ruling, Magistrate A.A Paul admitted each of the defendants to bail in the sum of N200, 000, with one surety in like sum. The magistrate also ordered the sureties must be residents of Lagos State with evidence of tax payment to the Lagos State government, among others.
