The Prosecutor, Mr Chris Okafor, told the court that the accused committed the offence on Monday  at about 12.05 pm at ring road area of  Osogbo.

Okafor said the accused conspired among themselves to chant abusive songs which were political and almost led to a breach of public peace.

The accused, however, pleaded  not guilty to the  charge against them while their counsel, Mr Olarewaju Jaiyeoba, pleaded for bail.

Chief Magistrate  Ayo Ayeni, however, ordered the accused to  be remanded in prison  while their counsel should  make  a formal application for  their  bail.

He adjourned the case till July 18 for hearing.
