Two persons were arraigned at the Akure Magistrates’ Court on Thursday over a missing 14-year-old girl.
The suspects, Omolola Adebayo, female, 32 and Oluwatimilehin Agunloko, male, 17, were alleged to have conspired to abduct the teenager.
Insp. Simon Wada, the police prosecutor, said the suspects committed the offences in Owo on October 28.
He explained that Mr Agunloko was the boyfriend of the missing girl while the other suspect was believed to have had the last phone conversation with her.
Mr Wada said the offences contravened sections 516 of the Criminal Code Cap 37, Vol. 1 Laws of Ondo State of Nigeria 2006 and section 3 of the Anti Kidnapping and Anti Abduction Law of Ondo State.
However, the defendants each pleaded not guilty to the charges.
Ruling on their bail application, the magistrate, Damilola Sekoni, granted the defendants N500,000 bail each and adjourned the case to January 18, 2024, for hearing.NAN
