Lawyer in court for allegedly threatening to kill Sen. Kashamu, one other

 

A 30-year-old lawyer, Bayo Adedokun, on Wednesday appeared in an
Igbosere Magistrates’ Court in Lagos, for allegedly threatening to
kill Sen. Buruji Kashamu and Alhaji Muniru Ogunleyetwo over land
disagreement.
Adedokun, whose address was not given, is charged with four counts of
conspiracy, attempted murder and conduct likely to cause breach of the
peace.
NAN reports that he pleaded not guilty as charged.
The Prosecution Counsel, Insp. Steven Molo, told the court that the
defendant committed the offence in August at Ogombo village in Eti-Osa
area of Lagos State.
Molo alleged that the defendant hired 10 thugs to kill the
complainants claiming that a portion of land they were occupying
belonged to his family.
He said the defendant conducted himself in a manner likely to cause
breach of the peace.
The offence, he said, contravenes the provisions of sections 56(a),
168(d), 230(1) and 411 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015.
Magistrate O.O. Oshin, however, admitted the defendant to bail on self
recognition and ordered him to deposit his certificate of Call to Bar
to the court.
Oshin adjourned the case until Nov. 14 for mention.
