27 year-old Bashiru Usman has reportedly been remanded in Kirikiri Correctional Centre owing to having a toy gun in his possession.

Usman whose address was not provided was charged with conspiracy and unlawful possession of firearm.

The order given by Magistrate Folashade Oshikoya was a follow-up to the motion moved by the prosecutor, ASP Victor Eruada, who insisted that the matter be referred to the Director of Public Prosecutions for advice.

The Magistrate who apart from objecting to the plea addressed by Usman, detailed the prosecutor duplicate the file and send to the DPP for legal advice.

The case was adjourned till the 4th of October.

Earlier, Eruada said that Usman and some persons, at large, committed the offence on July 16 at 2 p.m along Alaba Rago Market, Ojo, Lagos.

He said that Usman, while ”armed” with a locally-made toy gun, caused fear in the community.

The offence, he said, contravened the provisions of sections 411 and 312 of the Criminal Laws of Lagos State 2015.
