Oyewale was arraigned alongside two brothers of the same mother, Rabiu Olajide and Ramon Olayide on three-count charge of attempted murder, armed robbery and conspiracy.
The charge sheet obtained by CityMirrorNews today alleged that the three suspects armed with guns and cutlasses and broke into the house of one Olalekan Oyeyemi around Pavilion Hotel, Osogbo and robbed him of N200, 000 and two telephone handsets valued at N145, 500.
According to the charge sheet, the accused persons inflicted grievous injuries on Oyeyemi by unleashing several machete cuts on him but they did not succeed in killing him.
Police prosecutor, Inspector Elisha Olusegun told the court when the suspects were arraigned last week Monday that the suspects allegedly committed the offence on October 6, 2017.
The prosecutor explained that the offences committed by the suspects were contrary to and punishable under Sections 320(1) and 516 of the Criminal Code Cap 34, volume II, Laws of Osun State of Nigeria, 2002 and also under section 6(b) and section 1(1)(2)(a)(b) of the Robbery and Firearms (Special Provisions) Act Cap RII, volume 14, Laws of Federation of Nigeria, 2014.
