3 men to serve a month in correctional centre for cultism

An Igbosere Magistrates’ Court, Lagos, on Monday sentenced three cultists, Babatunde Oyekunle, Ahmed Oyetunde and Ismaila Ayinla, to one month in the correctional centre for unlawful assembly.

The Magistrate, Mrs. Folashade Botoku, found the defendants guilty on the three-count charge of unlawful assembly, parading oneself as member of a cult and belonging to an unlawful society.

She, however, sentenced them to one month on each of the three counts and ordered that the sentences should run concurrently.

The magistrate said that the sentences would take effect from  the date of arraignment.

Botoku advised the convicts to desist from life of crime, otherwise would face the full wrath of law if caught committing any offence.

The convicts, Oyekunle, 27, Oyetunde, 27 and Ahmed, 26, were first arraigned on Dec. 24, 2019 but they pleaded not guilty.

They were granted N100, 000 bail each with two sureties each in like sum.

However, on the resumed hearing on Monday, the trio who could not perfect their bail, changed their plea of not guilty to guilty.

They pleaded with the court to temper justice with mercy, adding that they had renounced cultism.

The Prosecutor, Sgt. Chinedu Njoku, had told the court that the trio committed the offences on Dec. 13, 2019, at 10 p.m. at Osho Langbasa Village, Ajah, Lagos.

He said that the trio paraded themselves as cult members, causing breach of the public peace.

Njoku said the offences contravened Sections 42 (a), 44 (1) and 411 of the Criminal Law of Lagos. (NAN)
