The three defendants; Tijani Wasiu (35yrs), Akangbe Tairu (35yrs) and Samad Mutairu (30yrs) were arraigned on two- count charge bordering on breach of public peace and assault.
The Police Prosecutor, Inspector Kayode Asanbe, had told the court that the suspects committed the offence on
on February 20th, 2021, at about 4:45 PM in Abudo village in Awo, Egbedore Local Government Area of the state
The Prosecutor alleged that the accused conducted themselves in a manner to cause a breach of peace.
He said: “They went to the palace of Alabudo to disturb labourers who are working in the palace by acting like a thug.
“The three defendants also assaulted Alabudo of Abudo, Oba Morufudeen Olawale in his palace by slapping and beating him with a cutlass.
The alleged offence according to the Prosecutor contravened section 249 (D) and 351 of the Criminal Code Cap. 34 Vol II. Laws of Osun State of Nigeria 2002.
However, the three defendants pleaded not guilty to the charge slammed against them.
Defence Counsel, Barrister A. O Okgi made an oral bail application for his clients on the most liberal term assuring the court that they have reliable sureties.
The prosecutor opposed the bail application on the grand that the alleged offence was a great insult on the traditional institute, saying it was wrong to slap a King not to talk of beating him with a cutlass.”
The presiding magistrate, Mr Isola Omisade, ordered that the three defendants be remanded to Corrections.
He adjourned the case to February 25th, 2021 for a ruling on bail.
