Two men, Olumide Abayomi and Mathew Ugama, were on Tuesday arraigned in an Ota Magistrates’ Court in Ogun over alleged breach of peace.
The accused, Abayomi, 24, and Ugama, 23, whose addresses were not disclosed, are facing a two-count charge of conspiracy and breach of peace.
The Prosecutor, Sgt. Abdulkareem Mustapha told the court that the accused and others still at large, committed the offences on Aug. 12 at about 3.30 a. m. on Idlroko Road in Ota.
