Three men, Aderemi Adegoke, Adekunle Adegoke and Rasaq Okemakinde, who allegedly beat-up a policeman to avert arrest, on Tuesday appeared before an Ikeja Chief Magistrate Court.
Adegoke, 59; Adegoke, 22 and Okemakinde, 30, are facing a six-count-charge bordering on conspiracy, breach of peace, willful damage and assault.
They, however, pleaded not guilty to the charges.
The police prosecutor, Akeem Raji, told the court that the defendants committed the offences on October 16 at 4 pm at No. 21 Bajomo St., Ahmadiyya, Ikeja.
Raji said the defendants assaulted Olumide Oshipoye while he was discharging his lawful duties.
He also said they damaged a Tecno phone worth N42,000 and collected an Elepaq generator, belonging to one David Odimba over an undisclosed argument they had.
Raji said the offenses contravened sections 117, 168, 172,173, 350 and 411 of the Criminal Law of Lagos, 2015.
The chief magistrate, O. I. Adelaja, granted the defendants bail in the sum of N100,000 each with two sureties in like sum.
Adelaja ordered that the sureties must be gainfully employed and show evidence of two years’ tax payment to the Lagos State government.
She adjourned the case to December 16 for mention.
