Ekiti -  Adebayo Ogungbemi,  the 22-year-old who allegedly caused a security scare at the premises of  the  Ekiti Government House  in Ado-Ekiti  on  Wednesday, has been arraigned  before  an Ado-Ekiti Chief Magistrates’  Court.

Ogungbemi  was charged on Monday  with  conducting himself in a manner likely to cause a breach of the  peace at the Government House.

The prosecutor, Sgt. Caleb Leramo, told the court that the accused at about 9 am on the said date wore an object suspected to be an explosive and wandered around the  premises of the Government House for a  disorderly purpose.

He said the accused by his actions  contravened Section 249(d), 80 and 250(6) of the Criminal Code Cap C38 Laws of the Federation of Nigeria, 2004.

Chief  Magistrate Richard Adegboye granted the accused bail in the sum of N100,000 and two ‘substantial’ sureties in like sum.

He adjourned the case till Jan.16, 2013 for mention.
