There is heavy security at the entrance and premises of the Federal High Court Osogbo where Olalekan Oyeyemi, an ally of Governor Ademola Adeleke is standing trial for killing and terrorism.

The Nation reports Oyeyemi was dragged before the court on ten-count charge of killing members of All Progressives Congress (APC) and terrorism by the Inspector General of Police. He pleaded not guilty and was remanded in Ife Correctional Facility.

The counsel to Oyeyemi, an appointee of Adeleke, Edmund Biriomoni, had filed a formal bail application on seven grounds which the prosecution counsel, Francis Osie, opposed based on Section 162 and 165 of the Administration of Criminal Justice 2015.
