An Evbuoriaria Magistrates’ Court in Edo State has remanded two sons of a former Deputy Speaker of the House of Assembly, Fred Omoigberai, in prison custody for allegedly threatening to kill their father.

They were alleged to have threatened to kill their father. The suspects were accused of intimidating their family and relations.

In the charge sheet, the brothers were alleged to have on September 23, 2017 scaled the fence of their father’s home at 1, Hon. Fred Omoigberai Street, off Sapele Road, Benin City.

They were alleged to be armed with guns and other weapons, held the security guard hostage for hours and attempted to break the doors to gain entry to the rooms with intent to attack, rob, kill or kidnap the occupants, particularly their father.
