A 24-year-old student, Chijioke Samson, who allegedly robbed a woman of her wedding ring and laptops at gunpoint, was on Monday arraigned at an Ikeja Magistrates’ Court.

Samson, who resides in Ikotun, a Lagos suburb, is facing a three-count charge bordering on unlawful possession of firearms and stealing.

His victim was identified as Modupe Adebayo.

Although the accused denied the charge, the prosecutor, Insp. Simeon Imhonwa told the court that the accused committed the offences with others still at large on April 3 at about 9.30 p.m. at No. 21, Ore-Ofe St., off Governor’s Road, Ikotun.

He said the accused broke into the complainant’s house and robbed her of her wedding ring, two laptops, a phone, all valued at N575,000 and N108,000 cash.

“The accused was apprehended by the police in his escape bid while accomplices fled in an unmarked car.”

According to Imhonwa, police recovered one locally-made gun with two live cartridges from the accused.

The offences contravened Sections 295, 296 and 297 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015 (revised).

The Chief Magistrate, Mrs B.O. Osunsanmi, ordered that the accused be remanded in prison and directed that the case file should be sent to the State Directorate of Public Prosecutions (DPP) for advice.

Osunsanmi adjourned the case until July 24 for mention. (NAN)
