A 27-year-old commercial motorcyclist, Mohammed Amine, was presented before the Badagry Chief Magistrates’ Court in Lagos by the police on charges of abducting an Air Force officer.

The defendant, whose residence remains unconfirmed, is accused of two counts: abduction and breach of peace.

According to ASP Clément Okuoimose, the prosecutor, the incident took place on August 9 around 9:40 p.m. in the Badagry area of Lagos.

Okuoimose detailed that the defendant allegedly abducted Reuben Robinson, an Air Force officer from the 653 Nigerian Air Force, Ahanve, Badagry, without his consent, leading him to an undisclosed location.

Furthermore, the prosecutor asserted that the defendant’s actions created a situation potentially causing a breach of peace as he transported the complainant to an undisclosed place on his TVS motorcycle with registration number BDG 737 QP.

The charges brought against the defendant are in violation of Sections 21 and 168 of the Criminal Law of Lagos, 2015.

The defendant pleaded not guilty to the charges during the hearing.

Chief Magistrate Mr. Fadahunsi Adefioye granted the defendant bail in the amount of N50,000 with one surety of equal value. The surety is required to provide evidence of stable employment and a verified tax address history spanning two years.

The case is scheduled for mention on September 14.
