Eyinatayo Iluyomade, a 19-year-old Lagos-based comedian, has been arrested and remanded in prison by a court in Ondo state for threatening to rob a bank.
Even though the comedian had pleaded not guilty to the charges levelled against him, claiming he was only playing a prank on the bank, he was denied bail and remanded in prison. However, the case was adjourned until he produced other members of his robbery gang.
According to a report by Vanguard, the comedian dropped a threat note on the counter of First Bank in Ondo town of Ondo state, noting that by 1 pm that same day, his robbery gang would come to rob the bank.
This led to the closure of all the banks in Ondo town for a whole day. He was, however, charged with three count-charges of conspiracy, threat and manner likely to pose a security threat to public safety.
