Two men, Adeweye Adelusi (20) and Agboola Damilola (23), were on Wednesday arraigned before an Ado-Ekiti Chief Magistrate Court over alleged self-kidnapping.

The defendants, who have no fixed address, are facing a two-count charge of conspiracy and self-kidnapping.

The prosecutor, Bamikole Olasunkanmi, told the court that the defendants committed the offences on Dec 31, 2020 at 8:30p.m. at Iloda Camp, off Ifaki-Ekiti in Ido/Osi Local Government Area of Ekiti.

Olasunkanmi alleged that the defendants conspired and kidnapped themselves, in contravention of Sections 5 and 4 of the Kidnap and Terrorism Law of Ekiti State, 2015.

The defendants, however, pleaded not guilty.

Counsel to the first and second defendants, Abiola Gboyega and Michael Ogunsakin, prayed the court to grant their clients bail, promising that they would not jump bail.

The Chief Magistrate, Adefumike Anoma, granted bail to the defendants in the sum of N50,000 with one surety each in like sum.

After the arraignment, the prosecutor asked the court for an adjournment to enable him to study the case file and present witnesses.

The court consequently adjourned the case until Feb 11 for substantive hearing.
