Osanyintuyi said the accused assaulted two special marshals, Omopo Idowu and Oderinde Zacheus, by slapping them  while performing  their lawful duties.

He further said that the accused attempted to kidnap the duo.

The prosecutor also said the accused obstructed one police officer, Tajudeen Agbaje, attached to “A” Division in  Ile-Ife by forcing him into  his car while performing his lawful duty.

The offences, he said, contravened Sections 356 (2) and 509 of the Criminal Code, Laws of Osun, 2003.

The accused, however, pleaded not guilty to the charges.

The defence counsel, Mr. Samuel Judge, who applied for the bail of his client, pledged to produce reliable sureties.

Magistrate Olalekan Ijiyode, however, rejected the oral bail  application and asked  defence counsel to produce a written application.

Ijiyode ordered the remand of the accused at Ile-Ife prison pending the consideration of his bail application.

The magistrate adjourned the case till Dec.  22 for hearing of the bail application.
