“During police investigation, the smart black body spray was found with the accused person and he confessed to the crime.”

The prosecutor said that the offence contravened sections 6 (b) and 1(1) (2) (a) (b) of the Robbery and Firearms (special provision) Act 2004.

Owochio said that investigation into the matter was ongoing and applied for adjournment to enable the police to conclude investigation.
