Three persons were on Monday docked at an Ado-Ekiti Chief Magistrates’ Court for allegedly damaging a vehicle belonging to Gospel singer, 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 October 27, at about 7:30 p.m. at the palace of Ewi in Ado-Ekiti, the capital of Ekiti State.

The News Agency of Nigeria reports that Ewi is the title of the traditional ruler of Ado-Ekiti.

According to Olasunkanmi, the accused persons conspired among themselves to unlawfully damage the windscreen of a vehicle belonging to Yinka Ayefele during his visit to the Ewi’s palace.

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 November 8 for further hearing.
