An Osogbo Chief Magistrates’ Court in Osun on Tuesday remanded in Ilesa prison an All Progressives Congress (APC) chieftain, Mr Fatai Oyedele, 60, and six others over alleged breach of public peace.
The other accused persons remanded are Salau Moshood, 43; Adekunle Onikole, 40; Oladosu Alo, 53; Funsho Babalola, 51; Babayo Daudu, 36; and Babalola Kayode, 42.
Oyedele, also known as Diekola, and the other accused persons are facing a three- count charge bordering on conspiracy and breach of public peace.
The Prosecutor, Mr Chris Okafor, told the court that the accused committed the offence on Monday at about 12.05 pm at ring road area of Osogbo.
Okafor said the accused conspired among themselves to chant abusive songs which were political and almost led to a breach of public peace.
He said the offences contravened Sections 517, 349, and 69 and were punishable under Section 70 of the Criminal Code Cap 34, Vol. II, Laws of Osun, 2002.
The accused, however, pleaded not guilty to the charge against them while their counsel, Mr Olarewaju Jaiyeoba, pleaded for bail.
Chief Magistrate Ayo Ayeni, however, ordered the accused to be remanded in prison while their counsel should make a formal application for their bail.
He adjourned the case till July 18 for hearing.
