Two boys, Ayodele Olugbade and Olaiya Femi were on Wednesday arraigned before an Ado-Ekiti Magistrates’ Court for allegedly manufacturing a pistol.
The accused persons were caught on April 29 for manufacturing the pistol at Egun in Ifaki-Ekiti. The police prosecutor, Corporal Ewuola Ebenezer urged the court to remand the accused persons.
However, counsel to the accused, Mr Christopher Omokhafe pleaded with the court to grant bail to them since the case was still under investigation.
The magistrate, Mr Bayode Owoeye granted bail to the accused in the sum of N40,000 each and two sureties. Owoeye added that one of the sureties must be a civil servant in Ado-Ekiti.
The case was adjourned to July 20. (NAN)
