High Court

The police on Wednesday arraigned a 29-year-old man in an Ikeja Magistrates court in Lagos for being in possession of 589 Permanent Voter Cards.

Lukman Animashaun who resides at No. 12a Itire Road, Lagos, is facing a two-count charge of disobedience to law and breach of public peace.

The prosecutor, Edet Okoi, told the court that the accused committed the offences on November 20 at 7 a.m. at Itire Primary School, Lagos.

He then adjourned the matter until January 12 for mention. (NAN)
