The 21-year-old who is unemployed and resides at 21, Ilogbo St., Apapa Road, Lagos, is being tried for conspiracy, arson, and causing a breach of peace.
The Magistrate, M.C. Ayinde, who refused to take the defendant’s plea, ordered that he should be remanded in Kirikiri Correctional centre until September 1, pending legal advice.
Meanwhile, the Prosecution Counsel, Segun Oke, who told the court that the offences were committed in October 2020 at the Oyingbo BRT bus terminal, Lagos, said that Chinasa and others at large set the BRT bus terminal on fire during the #EndSARS protest.
According to him, the offences contravened the provisions of Sections 168, 343 and 411 of the Criminal Laws of Lagos State, 2015.
