Court Remands 3 For Allegedly Killing Landlord’s Son

An Ebute Meta Chief Magistrates’ Court today ordered the remand of two men and a woman at the Ikoyi Prisons over alleged murder. Earlier, the Prosecutor, Insp Asu Feddy, said the accused persons, Funke Awolere, Omotayo Oyekunle and Christopher Nwosu are facing a two-count charge of conspiracy and murder.

The Chief Magistrate, Ogunkanmi O.A., who gave the order, said the accused persons should be in prison, pending an advice from the Lagos State Director of Public Prosecutions.

Feddy told the court that the accused persons committed the offence on April 10 at about 5.00 p.m. at No.3 Fasenge St., Mile 12, Lagos.

He said that a tenant in the house raised an alarm when the deceased, who had lived in Guinea Bissau for over 24 years returned to his father’s house and threatened the tenants with eviction order. The accused persons pounced on him lynching him and threw his body on the road and he was crushed by a moving car.

The prosecutor said the offence contravened Sections 221 and 231 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2011. He said the section prescribes death penalty for any person convicted of the offence. The plea of the accused persons was not taken.

The magistrate adjourned the case until June 25 for mention.
