The duo, however, pleaded not guilty to the charge.

Emuerhi told the court that the defendants committed the offences with others still at large on Feb. 24 about 10.30 p.m. at Owode Ibeshe Bus Stop, Ikorodu, Lagos.
“The defendants conducted themselves in a manner likely to cause the breach of peace by attacking innocent passersby at Ibeshe Bus Stop,” the prosecutor submitted.
The Chief Magistrate, Mrs J.A. Adegun, admitted the defendants to N50,000 bail with one surety in like sum.
NAN also reports that breach of peace is punishable with six months’ jail term or a fine of N50,000, while conspiracy attracts two years’ jail term.
The Magistrate adjourned the case until April 26 for mention.
