The Police on Friday arraigned three men at an Abeokuta Magistrates Court in Isabo, Abeokuta, for alleged unlawful possession of guns without licence.

The defendants, Isiaka Ismaila, 50, Gbabo Felix, 58, Daniel Nomcha, 48, are standing trial on a count charge of unlawful possession of guns.

The Prosecutor, Insp. Olu-balogun Lawrence, told the court that the defendants committed the offence on Jan. 8 at about 8:30 p.m at Opeji, Isabo area in Abeokuta.

Lawrence said the defendants were caught with three locally made barrel guns, one English pump action gun and eight live cartridges without licence.

The prosecutor alleged that the defendants did not give any satisfactory explanation for the guns found with them.

He said that the offences contravened Sections 3514 of the Firearms Act, Cap F28, Laws of the Federation of Nigeria, 2004.

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

The Magistrate, Mr Olakuleyin Oke, granted the defendants bail in the sum of N200, 000 and two sureties in like sum.

Oke ordered the sureties to show evidence of tax payment to Ogun Government and must be gainfully employed.

He, however, adjourned the case until Feb.7 for further hearing.
