A man who used baboon and snake to terrorise and rob his victims has been dragged to court.
Mohammed Nafiu, a 27-year-old 'magician', is facing charges of using a baboon and a snake to terrorise and rob his victims in the Ogba area of Lagos State.
Nafiu who was dragged to the Ikeja Chief Magistrates’ Court, is facing a five-count charge bordering on conspiracy, breach of public peace and robbery.
The prosecutor in the case, ASP Eranus Nnamonu, told the court that the suspect had, on March 7 and 17, 2015, terrorised residents of Ogba and Ijaiye when 'armed' with a full grown baboon and a venomous snake, and particularly isolated one Joshua Odogwu, who had stopped-by to watch his magical display, and obtained the sum of N57, 000 from him.
"The obviously terrified victim dropped all he had in his bag along with N57, 000 cash, which the accused collected."
On March 17, Nafiu was again at work when he allegedly visited the shop of one Henry Ugwuokoh and forcefully obtained N230, 000, while using his 'partners' in crime to threaten his victim.
