Ali, whose address was not given, was charged before a  Yaba Chief Magistrates’ Court, Lagos, with two counts of conspiracy and armed robbery.

Magistrate O.S Aka-Bashorun, who ordered that the accused should be remanded,  said the case file should be sent to the DPP for legal advice.

Aka-Bashorun adjourned the case till April 24 for the DPP’s advice.

Earlier, the prosecutor, Sgt Onaiwu Iyobosa, told the court that the accused committed the offences on March 12, at about 10:18 pm, at Costain Bus-Stop, Lagos.

Iyobosa said a policeman on duty rescued the accused and his accomplice from an angry mob, which had pounced on the duo for allegedly robbing some members of the public of their valuables.

“The accused and one other were spotted by a group of people dispossessing some members of the public of their valuables with a locally-made toy gun and they pounced on them.

“The accused and his accomplice were beaten-up and were about to be set ablaze when they were rescued. Ali’s accomplice, however, gave up the ghost on the way to the hospital,” she said.

The offences of the accused contravene Sections 297 (1) and 411 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015.
