Agodi Correctional Facility Refuses to Accommodate Inmates Over Failure to Provide COVID-19 Test Results

Warders from the Agodi correctional Centre, Ibadan have dragged three suspected hooligans to a Grade A Customary Court, sitting at Mapo in Ibadan as they refused to accommodate the inmates because they failed to provide COVID-19 test results.

The hooligans who are Oluwaseun Ayola, 33; Yusuf Taofeek, 41 and Adetunji Adeyemo, 4, were rejected by the warders who said they had a directive not to accommodate any inmate, who could not show evidence of negative COVID-19 test certificate.

The three hooligans are facing a five-count charge bordering on conspiracy, willful obstruction, malicious damage and road blocking.

The prosecutor, Sgt. Ayodele Ayeni told the court that the defendants, with others now at large, committed the crime on January 28 around 10.00 a.m. at Oja-oba area in Ibadan.

Ayeni further said that the defendants attacked and tore the mufti dresses of policemen, who were lawfully carrying out their duty.

Ayola and Taofeek pleaded guilty to the charges.

Ruling on the suit, the President of the court, Mrs Imoleayo Akinrodoye admitted each of the defendants to N100,000 bail with two reliable sureties in like.

However, the duo could not fulfil the bail conditions spelt out.

The Customary Court subsequently ordered the three suspected hooligans to be remanded in the Mapo police cell till they could fulfil their bail conditions.
