A 25-year-old man, Abdulmumini Oseni, who on Friday appeared before an Ogudu Magistrates’ Court in Lagos for allegedly belonging to a cult known as ‘Eiye’ confraternity, had been granted bail.
The accused is facing a two-count charge of conspiracy and belonging to an unlawful society.
Oseni, who resides at Seriki Oro in Ikeja area of Lagos, however, pleaded not guilty to the charges.
The Prosecutor, Sgt. Lucky Ihiehie, told the court that the offences were committed on Sept. 1 at about 4:00 a.m. at Gowon Estate, Egbeda Area of Lagos State.
Oseni and three others now at large, invaded the complainants’ house with axe and cutlass and introduced themselves as ‘Eiye’ Confraternity members.
According to the complainant, Mr Abubakar Ahmed, they told him that they came to treat his misdeeds.
They said they fought against intimidation and that the complainant shouldn’t dare them.
