Nine students of Ifeoluwa Co-Educational Grammar School Osogbo, Osun State have been remanded in Prison and Juvenile Home for allegedly attempting to kill their school principal, Mary Adeoye.
The students who were dragged to a Magistrate’s Court sitting in Osogbo include, Adebiyi Timileyin, 18, Tajudeen Akinlolu, 20, Waheed Abass, 19, Ok Manni, 17, Mood Rid, 17, Ade Broom, 17, Leks Kiki, 14, Money Freeze, 17 and Abd Ballings, 16.
According to the Police, the students are members of Aiye confraternity and armed themselves with cutlasses, axes and charms, with the intent to kill Adeoye. According to the charge sheet obtained by The Guardian, the defendants and others at large, committed the offence on February 17, 2021, as they pleaded not guilty to the seven count-charges of conspiracy, breach of peace, unlawful possession of arms, engaging in unlawful society and threat to life.
Defence counsel, Oladipupo Olatunbosun prayed the court to admit the accused teenagers to bail saying that considering their ages, the court should be magnanimous in its decision by admitting them to bail. However, the prosecuting counsel from the state ministry of justice, Moses Faremi, opposed this. Magistrate Ishola Omisade ordered that Timileyin, Akinlolu, and Abass be remanded in Ilesa Correctional Centre, while the others were to be remanded in Juvenile Home at Testing Ground because of their age.
