According to the charge, the act was committed on or about 26/11/18 at Emure Ekiti highway when the accused persons were armed with two locally made guns and conspired with intention of committing armed robbery, contrary to sections 6(b), 2 and 3(1) of the robbery and firearms (special provision Act) Cap R11, laws of the federation of Nigeria, 2004.

According to one of the local securities who testified before the court, they were arrested along Emure/Eporo road after they received a distress call from the villagers along the axis.

To prove his case, the prosecutor, O. M. Ajumobi called 4 witnesses while 2 locally made pistols, 3 pieces of live cartridges, Indian hemp, tramadol tablets, statements of the accused among others were tendered as exhibits.

The accused spoke in their own defence through their counsel, Chris Omokhafe and called no witnesses.
