Ogunremi said Gabriel and Bello on June 6  at about 1:30 pm while armed with guns and other dangerous weapons attacked one Sarah Ondua and  dispossessed her of N4,000 cash.

“One Samsung cell phone valued at N45, 000 and one Nokia cell phone valued at N30,000 was also snatched  from her,’’ he said.

He alleged that the duo also robbed one Opeyemi Odushina of an  Apple cell phone valued at N80, 000 and  a Nokia S2  phone valued at N45, 000.

“The attack was said to have been committed on June 6  at about 1:30pm at Olugbode Street, Odo-Ona,  Alakia, Ibadan,’’ Ogunremi said.

He said the offence was contrary to and punishable under Section 1 (2) and 6(B) of the Robbery and Firearms (Special Provision) Act, Cap RII, Vol. 14, Laws of the Federal Republic of Nigeria,  2004.
