How Ayodeji Snatched A Car With His Toy Gun
A man, Fadayini Ayodeji, who allegedly robbed one Mrs Rukayat Sowole of her car, using a toy gun, was on Thursday arraigned in an Abeokuta Magistrates’ Court, Isabo.
Ayodeji is facing a two-count charge of robbery and unlawful possession of dangerous weapons.
Perhaps if he did not also have a knife on him, the “unlawful possession of dangerous weapon” might not have stood.
The prosecutor, Insp. Sunday Eigbejiale, told the court that Ayodeji, with a toy gun and a knife, robbed Sowole of her Nissan Primera car, with registration No. LND 749CZ, valued at N1.3 million.
“The accused also stole the complainant’s handbag which contained N75, 000, a cheque book and her vehicle particulars,” he said.
He was arrested by the police in Omida area of Abeokuta immediately after the robbery but pleaded not guilty before the court.
The Chief Magistrate, Mrs Adeola Adelaja, adjourned the case until June 2 and ordered the remand of the accused, pending legal advice from the State Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP).
