Ojeah said Alamiyo also shot one Isiaka Afolabi, 47, with pump action gun in the right eye.

Counsel to the defendants, Mr Abiodun Abdulraheem, in his argument urged the court to grant his client bail as the first defendant has a medical history of hypertension.

The Chief Magistrate, Mrs Jejelola Ogunbona ordered that the defendants be remanded at Agodi Prison pending the outcome of advice from the Oyo State Directorate of Public Prosecution.

She said, “The first defendant, Ilaka, should be given free access to see a doctor while in prison for the sake of his hypertension according to his lawyer’s plea,” Ogunbona odered.

She then adjourned the case until September 18 for mention.
