Court Orders Remand Of 21-Yr-Old Over Murder Charge

An Osun Magistrates’ Court sitting in Ile-Ife yesterday ordered a 21-year-old man Sodiq Adewale to be remanded in prison for alleged murder.

Adewale is standing trial on a one-count charge of murder.

Magistrate Risikat Olayemi held that her court lacked jurisdiction to entertain capital offence related case.

Olayemi, however, directed the Prosecuting Inspector Emmanuel Abdullahi, to send a copy of the case file to the Office of the Director of Public Prosecution (DPP) for Legal Advice.

She adjourned the case till January 23 for receipt of legal advice.

Earlier, the Prosecutor had told the court that the accused committed the offence on November 30 at about 10:10 am at New Buka, Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU), Ile-Ife, Osun State.

Abdullahi told the court that the accused unlawfully caused the death of one Omoboriowo Olufemi after hitting him with his fist.

He said the offence contravened Sections 316 (1) and 319 (1) of the Criminal Code, Laws of Osun, 2002.
