A 19-year-old, Ibrahim A, who is standing trial for attempted murder and cult membership, is to remain behind bars until he fulfilled his bail conditions, a Lagos court ruled on Monday.
Ibrahim, an applicant, appeared before an Ebute Meta Chief Magistrates’ Court on a four-count charge bordering on attempted murder, belonging and managing an unlawful society.
Ibrahim pleaded not guilty.
The Magistrate, B.O. Ope-Agbe, had slammed a bail of N500,000 with two responsible sureties on the accused.
Ope-Agbe, however, adjourned till October 2 pending advice from the State Directorate of Public Prosecutions (DPP).
Earlier, the Prosecutor, Insp. Jimah Iseghede told the court that the offences were committed on May 27 at Vision Hotel, Onabola Street, Pedro in Bariga area of Lagos.
He said the accused had attempted to murder one Adekunle by breaking a bottle on his head.
The accused is also alleged to be managing and belonging to a cult – “Aiye” confraternity – and also disrupting public peace.
The offences, Iseghede noted, contravened Sections 41, 166, 228 and 409 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2011.
