Osun nude video: Suspects arraigned on armed robbery, kidnapping

Eight suspects arrested in connection with the nude video of the Majority Leader of the Osun State House of Assembly, Mr Timothy Owoeye, were arraigned before a Chief Magistrates’ Court in Osogbo on Wednesday.

The suspects were brought to court last month, but they could not be arraigned following the disruption of court proceedings by supporters of the lawmaker, who thronged the court in a large number, making it impossible for the court to sit.

Security was beefed up on Wednesday as the suspects were brought to court from the prison where they were kept.

The state Attorney-General, who was represented by the Chief State Counsel, Mr Moses Faremi, made an application to the magistrate, Mr Olusegun Ayilara, that the state should be allowed to take over the case from the police. The magistrate ruled in his favour.

Faremi also sought the leave of the court to substitute the charges against the accused, but the counsel for the 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 5th accused, Mr Kazeem Badmus, objected to this.

He argued that the court should give the defence counsel time to study the new charges while reminding the magistrate that the business of the day was to rule on the application for bail of the defendants.

Other counsel aligned with the submission of Badmus.

But the magistrate said the prosecution was at liberty to substitute the charges and subsequently ruled against the application for bail.

The new charges read in part, “That you, Kazeem Agbabiaka, Femi Oyebode, Abdularasheed Ojonla, Babatunde Oluajo, Adebiyi Oseni, Oyebanji Oyeniyi, Ismaila Azeez, Awodunmola Kehinde, and others now at large, between April and July 2018, in the Oluajo area, Osogbo, in the Osogbo Magisterial District, did conspire among yourselves to commit a felony, to wit; armed robbery, thereby committing an offence contrary to Section 6 (B) and punishable under Section 1 (2) (A) of the Robbery and Firearms Special Provisions Act, 2004.

“That you, Kazeem Agbabiaka, Femi Oyebode, Abdularasheed Ojonla, Babatunde Oluajo, Adebiyi Kehinde Oseni, Oyebanji Oyeniyi, Ismaila Azeez, Awodunmola Kehinde, and others now at large, between April and July 2018, in the Oluajo area, Osogbo, in the Osogbo Magisterial District, while armed with weapons like guns, axes and cutlasses, did rob one Timothy Owoeye of the sum of N38m, thereby committing an offence contrary to and punishable under Section 1 (2) (A) of the Robbery and Firearms Special Provisions Act, 2004.

“That you, Kazeem Agbabiaka, Femi Oyebode, Abdularasheed Ojonla, Babatunde Oluajo, Adebiyi Oseni, Oyebanji Oyeniyi, Ismaila Azeez, Awodunmola Kehinde, and others now at large, between the month of April and July 2018, in the Oluajo area, Osogbo, in the Osogbo Magisterial District, did kidnap one Timothy Owoeye, thereby committing an offence contrary to and punishable under Section 364 (2) of the Criminal Code Cap 34, Vol. II, Law of Osun State, 2002.”

Their pleas could not be taken as the defence counsel argued that the magistrate court lacked jurisdiction to hear the case.

Ayilara adjourned till October 24 for ruling on the argument on jurisdiction.
