An Ikeja Magistrate Court on Tuesday remanded three men in Kirikiri Correctional Centre for allegedly robbing a man of N65,000 cash and other valuables at gunpoint.

The Police charged Michael Adeosun, 20; Dare Atunde, 23 and Adeniyi Okunolye, 23 with robbery.

The Magistrate, A.O.O. Fajana, who did not take the plea of the defendants, ordered the prosecution to send the case file to the Lagos State Department of Public Prosecution, (DPP) for legal advice.
