The defendants, Adewale Mayowa, 19 and Ishola Olashile, 19, whose pleas were not taken, are facing a two-count charge of conspiracy and armed robbery.

The Magistrate, Mr E. O. Ogunkanmi, adjourned the case till Feb. 13, for mention.

Earlier, the Prosecutor, Sgt. Adegeshin Famuyiwa, told the court that the defendants, whose addresses were not provided, committed the offence on Dec.10, 2019 in Ikorodu.

Famuyiwa said that the defendants, with others now at large, armed with a knife, robbed one Bajeh Peters of his mobile phone, valued at N10,000.

According to the prosecutor, the offences contravened Sections 411 and 297(b) of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015.
