“They also robbed at gunpoint one Sunday Ukwandu at No.4 Wharf Road, Ipado in  Ikorodu of 200 new tyres valued at N3million and N70,000 in cash.
“Samuel and Nsiyanya on March 27, 2013, at Wharf Road in Ikorodu, also attacked and robbed one Mrs Abisola Ogunbiyi of LG refrigerators and fans, the values of which are yet to be determined. “They also robbed one Mrs Busayo Bamimosu and Mrs Alice Ishola at their shops of various items valued at N449,000″, Nnamonu said.
    The prosecutor said they were apprehended following a police tip-off.
He said the offences contravened Sections 41, 166, 409 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2011 and Sections 1(2) of Robbery and Firearm Act Cap. 378 of 2003. The magistrate, Mrs A.R. Onilogbo, ordered that the
