The accused is facing a two-count charge of conspiracy and robbery.

The Magistrate, Mrs O.A. Salawu, who gave the ruling, said the accused should remain behind the bars pending legal advice from the State Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP).

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the plea of the accused, who appeared with bullet wounds on his chest and leg, was not taken.

Earlier, the Prosecutor, Sgt. Kehinde Olatunde told the court that the accused committed the offences with another man still at large on Feb. 22 on Iponri Road, Surulere.

According to him, the accused, armed with a locally made pistol, dispossessed the complainant, Chinedu Dike of his handbag containing some valuables.

The offences contravened Sections 286 and 299 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State 2015.

The case was adjourned to April 9.
