Four Fulani men trading in Kwara and Oyo states were, on Thursday, arraigned before a Kwara State Magistrate Court for allegedly robbing a farmer, Hassan Umar, of Gwanara in the Baruten Local Government Area of the state of N1.5m.

The prosecution alleged that the four traders, Mallami Mohammed, from the Kaiama Fulani camp; Yale Bello, from Ilesa Baruba; Ali Umar, a cattle herder at the Bwen Fulani camp, all in Kwara State; and Abubakar Aliyu, from Sepeteri in Oyo State, conspired and robbed Hassan and his son, Shamsudeen Sheu, of N1.5m with guns and other weapons.

The accused persons are facing two counts of conspiracy and armed robbery contrary to sections 6(B) and 1(2) of the Robbery and Firearms (Special Provisions) Act, Cap R11, Laws of the Federation of Nigeria, 2004.

The Police First Information Report indicated that Hussein Umar reported at the Gwanara Police Station that his brother, Hassan, and his son, Shamsudeen Sheu were attacked by some persons with guns around 11pm on April 11, 2020.

However, the police prosecutor, Saliu Issa, in an ex parte motion, urged the court to order the detention of the accused persons pending the completion of police investigation on the matter.

Chief Magistrate Oladosu Abayomi ordered that the accused persons be remanded in the Federal Correctional Centre, Madala, Ilorin.
