Four friends were on Monday docked in a Grade ‘A’ Customary Court in Ibadan for allegedly threatening the life of Pastor Charles Gold.

The police charged Olatunji Musibau, 44, Abiodun Folarin, 50, Kazeem Oluremi, 60 and Yusuf Sodiq, 23, with conspiracy and conduct likely to cause breach of peace.

Earlier, the Prosecution Counsel, Mr Philip Amusan, informed the court that the defendants allegedly committed the offence on March 8, at about 2 pm at New Bodija Area in Ibadan.

Amusan alleged that the defendants and others at large, threatened violence against Pastor Gold, of Echo Evangelical Ministry Ibadan.

He said the offence contravened the provisions of sections 516 and 383 of the Criminal Laws of Oyo State, 2000.

The defendants, however, pleaded not guilty to the charge.

The Court President, Mrs Moji Aworemi, admitted the defendants to bail in the sum of N150,000 each and one surety each in like sum.

Aworemi held that the surety must be a blood relation to the defendants.

She adjourned the case until April 29, for mention.
