An Ilorin Magistrate Court on Thursday remanded a 27-year-old man, Amusa Olatunji, for allegedly forging a military identity card.

The Prosecuting Police, Insp. Nasiru Yusuf, told the court that the accused, on Nov.1, presented himself as an Air force Officer to the Divisional Police Officer at Oke-Ode in Irepodun Local Government area of Kwara.

According to him, when the DPO suspected the genuineness of the identity card, Olatunji brandished a dagger and threatened to stab any policeman that came close to him.

He said that the accused was arraigned on a three-count charge of criminal Intimidation, false impersonation and forgery Contrary to Section 397, 179 and 364 of the Penal Code Law.

The accused, however, pleaded not guilty to the charges against him. The prosecutor objected to bail of the accused on grounds that the offences were not bailable.

Magistrate Abdullahi Hassan ordered that the accused be remanded at Okekura Prison, Ilorin, and adjourned the case till Dec. 14, for further mention. (NAN)
