An Enugu Magistrate Court has remanded one Christian Okolo in prison custody for trespassing into the Gateway Layout Ibagwa Nike Enugu.
Okolo is equally accused of leading a group of miscreants to attack members of the Gateway Layout Enugu Multipurpose Cooperative Society Ltd who are the landlords with their government allocations and statutory building certificate of occupancies.
The landlords were reportedly attacked when they were re-establishing the road networks which were over-grown with weeds at the Gateway Layout Ibagwa, Enugu on November 12, 2022.
The accused, Christian Okolo was arraigned Thursday on a nine-count charge at Enugu East Magisterate Court before His Worship Magistrate A.N.Ede- Anih.
He pleaded not guilty to the 9- Count Charge proffered against him by the prosecution.
Defendant’s Counsel F.N. Ozude Esq applied for bail, however based on overwhelming submissions of the prosecution it was not granted.
The prosecution established that he is likely to commit more of the offence as he has repeatedly done by returning to the land to disturb the landlords, and look for innocent unsuspecting public to defraud with the land belonging to the Cooperative.
Consequently, the court in its wisdom denied bail, and adjourned to March 21, 2023, for consideration of bail application, while all parties get ready for trial.
