An Ikeja High Court has remanded a 22-year-old man, Elijah Anyasador, in the correctional centre for allegedly robbing a woman returning from church of her handbag containing N100 and a copy of the Holy Bible.

Anyasador, whose residential address was not provided, was remanded by Justice Oyindamola Ogala on Thursday following his not guilty plea to a charge of armed robbery.

The offence contravenes Section 297 of the Criminal Law of Lagos 2015.

According to the state prosecutor, A. Oluwaseun, the defendant committed the offence around 7 pm on June 6, 2018, at the Ikorodu area of Lagos.

According to the charge, the defendant, while armed with a gun, robbed Mrs Joy John, a housewife heading home from church, of her handbag containing the sum of N100, a copy of the Holy Bible and also a Hymnbook.

According to the prosecution, after she was robbed, Joy immediately raised an alarm, alerting passersby who pursued and apprehended Anyasador and handed him over to the authorities.

Justice Ogala adjourned the case to November 2 for trial.
