Court remands two over alleged abduction


A Federal High Court in Ibadan on Monday ordered two terror suspects, Aliyu Mohammed and Ozain Mohammed, to be remanded at the Agodi correctional facility, pending their trial.

Justice Ekerete Akpan gave the order after Aliyu and Ozain had pleaded not guilty to the two-count charge of unlawful possession of guns and abduction.

Akpan subsequently adjourned the suit till Oct. 8 for the commencement of trial.

The Department of State Services, DSS, Prosecutor, T.A. Nurudeen had earlier told the court that Aliyu and Ozain committed the crime between October 2022 and March 2023 at Saki West in the Oke-Ogun area of Oyo State.

Nurudeen said that DSS operatives received a distress call from some concerned members of the community about the abduction and detention of one Usman Dandare, an indigene of Saki West, at a location in the vicinity.

He further said that the secret police swung into action and apprehended the duo.

According to the prosecution, the offences contravene the provisions of Sections 21(1) and 26(1) of the Terrorism and Prohibition and Prevention Act 2024
