Three persons were on Monday arraigned at an Ado-Ekiti Chief Magistrates’ Court for allegedly damaging a vehicle belonging to popular Gospel-Tungba maestro, Yinka Ayefele.

The accused are: Kolade Owolabi (35); Tope Olorunfemi (22) and Isiaka Yusuf, 20‎.

The prosecutor, Bankole Olasunkanmi, told the court that the suspects committed the offence on 27 October, at about 7:30 p.m. at the palace of Ewi of Ado-Ekiti.

According to Olasunkanmi, the accused persons conspired among themselves to unlawfully damage the windscreen of a vehicle belonging to Ayefele during his visit to the monarch.

He said the offence contravened Section 451 of the Criminal Code, Cap C16 Vol. 1 Laws of Ekiti State

The prosecutor applied for a short adjournment to enable him study the case file as well as assemble his witnesses.

The accused persons, however, pleaded not guilty to the charges.

Their counsel, Gabriel Oladimeji, prayed the court to grant them bail, promising that they would not jump bail.

Chief Magistrate Idowu Ayenimo, consequently, granted bail to all the accused persons in the sum of N50,000 each and one surety each in like sum.

He, thereafter, adjourned the case to 8 November for further hearing.
