An Osogbo Chief Magistrates’ Court in Osun on Monday remanded two men, Odundare Abdulrauf, and Tajudeen Popoola, in Ilesa Prisons for alleged burglary and conspiracy.

The Magistrate, Mrs Aisha Oloyade, ordered that Abdulrauf, 66, and Popoola, 62, should be kept behind bars, due to the magnitude of their offence.

The duo, who pleaded not guilty, are both facing a four count-charge of burglary, theft, conspiracy and breach of public peace.

The Prosecutor, Insp. Olusegun Elisha, told the court that the defendants committed the offences on July 20, 2014, at about 10 p.m. at Onward area of Osogbo.

He said the duo conspired to break into the apartment of one Odeniyi Ayodeji and attempted to cart away some valuables before they were apprehended and brought to court.

Elisha said the defendants stole a Mercedes Benz car valued at N1.5 million, debit cards and handsets, belonging to the complainant.

“The accused also have in their possession master keys and other sensitive materials which they used to rob.

The prosecutor said the offence contravened Sections 516, 411(1), 390(9) and 430(1) of the Criminal Code, Cap 34, Vol.11, Laws of Osun State, 2002.

The Defence Counsel, Mr Najite Okobie, prayed the court to grant his clients bail in liberal terms.

The magistrate, however, overruled the bail application on the ground that the defendants had earlier jumped bail and were rearrested and had, therefore, abused the privilege given to them.
